There are two things I love having any meal, and that's chicken and bacon! The versatility of these two proteins makes it a perfect combination for just about anything, may it be topped with rice, vegetables, or even pasta! My favorite go-to dish would have to be a Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta because of this, which is extremely easy to make and gives off the creamiest flavors! It's a massive hit for potlucks and expect no leftovers.
If you're wondering how to make it yourself, then read on as I show you my Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta recipe!
I am in love with this recipe because it's so easy to make. As long as you have these seven ingredients, you'll be able to whip this up in less than an hour. I love its creaminess and the tangy flavors the ranch dressing gives it. Pair it with your tender chicken and crispy bacon, and you won't want anything else.
It's so filling and perfect for just about any event or family meal. The best part? It's packed with cheese and baked to a creamy casserole, comfort food or go-to dinner of mine (tweak the ingredients according to how many people you'll be serving)!
This recipe serves six people.
1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare your 13x9-inch pan by greasing or spraying it.
2. Combine the penne pasta, shredded chicken, pasta sauce, and ranch dressing in a large bowl. Stir until everything is mixed together and pour the mixture into the pan. Spread everything evenly.
3. Sprinkle the chopped bacon evenly on the top of the pasta mixture, as well as the mozzarella cheese.
4. Let the pasta bake for about 20 minutes or until the pasta is hot and bubbly. After 20 minutes, allow it to stand for five minutes to cool down before serving. Sprinkle it with chopped parsley, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
Pasta doesn't need to be limited to three sauces. With ranch dressing as a twist, you'll have that tangy, creamy flavors both your kids and friends will appreciate! Easy to make with common ingredients, this won't break your wallet nor will you need mad cooking skills.
