This colorful one-pot pasta is fast, simple, and satisfying. Let the rigatoni cook while you prep the rest, then set aside the al dente pasta to sauté the garlic, chicken, and veggies—quick-cooked to a tender-crisp finish. Tossed together with grated Parmesan cheese, it’s both balanced and comforting.
