Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta


Ingredients

  • 10-12 oz penne pasta
  • 2-cups cooked and chopped chicken
  • 3/4-cup cooked and crumbled bacon-or more if you prefer
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2-cups heavy cream (milk would be fine too)
  • 1-tsp onion powder
  • 1-tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup Ranch dressing
  • 3/4-cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • Cook pasta according to its package directions. Drain. I always add alittle olive oil after I drain it and stir in around so the pasta noodles don't stick together or the pot.
  • Toss in cooked and chopped chicken as well as cooked and crumbled bacon into pasta.
  • To make ranch Alfredo sauce; melt butter in saucepan, add flour and stir to combine. Once you have your roux, add heavy cream (or milk) stir constantly until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and stir in garlic sat, onion powder and ranch dressing until well combined.
Pour ranch alfredo sauce over pasta, chicken and bacon. Stir to evenly combine.
Add in shredded cheddar cheese and stir to combine.
Pour into a casserole pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 min.

 

Amy's Notes:

We really enjoyed this and the only thing i did differently was i added alittle extra cheese to the top. Would be a good freezer meal.
