All the flavors of a classic Margherita pizza in cheesy pasta form! This One Pot Chicken Margherita Pasta with Ricotta is loaded with ripe tomatoes, garlic, basil and Italian seasonings in a creamy-dreamy ricotta parmesan sauce! It's easy to make and even easier to devour!
Reduce heat to medium low and add in the oil and remaining butter. Once melted, increase heat to medium and add in the onions and season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in half of the tomatoes and continue to cook for 1 minute. Add in the garlic, Italian seasonings and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add in the flour and cook, stirring, for another 1-2 minutes. Add in the chicken broth and half-and-half, whisking constantly to combine.
Add the chicken back to the pan along with the pasta. Bring to a slow boil, stirring occasionally, then immediately reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the pasta is just al dente.
