Chicken Ranch Pasta

Image

My favorite food is pasta. You can be as creative as you want with it. I always like to add chicken in my pasta and try different sauces. This recipe is perfect for me because I love chicken and I love ranch. When they are combined in this recipe, it is heavenly. Also, there is some bacon in it which makes it so much better! Try this recipe for dinner one night!

Ingredients:

8 ounces penne pasta
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp dry ranch dressing seasoning mix
2 cups milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup cooked, chopped bacon
2 cups cooked chopped chicken

Continue cooking until sauce thickens. Stir in ranch dressing mix and cheese. Stir until cheese melts. Add chicken, bacon and pasta.  Stir to coat.
