This AIP Crock Pot Butternut Squash Chicken & Pasta is a quick and easy weeknight meal. The perfect nightshade-free and dairy-free pasta dish!

I love the simplicity of just tossing everything into the slow cooker, setting it and walking away until it’s dinner time. Plus, a delicious meal that takes just five minutes of hands-on time is this lazy cook’s dream!

Savory, nutty flavors combine with a tiny bit of a kick from the garlic and onion for a cozy AIP pasta dish that makes a cold, blistery winter night not seem so bad, after all.
