Chicken, Bacon & Ranch Pasta

Hubby said I could make this again. But I think in the past 4 years there’s only been once that he HASN’T said that…

Chicken, Bacon & Ranch Pasta

2 c. rotini pasta

4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

2 c. diced, cooked chicken breast

2 c. low sodium chicken broth

2 TB ranch dressing and seasoning mix

4 oz whipped cream cheese

½ c. shredded, reduced fat cheddar cheese (optional)

Cook pasta in boiling water. (I used quinoa pasta from Aldi for zero WW points on purple.) Meanwhile, cook bacon in large skillet. When crisp remove to a paper towel to drain, then chop or crumble. Remove most of the grease from the pan and add the chicken and cooked bacon. Add broth, ranch powder and cream cheese to pan and combine well.  Turn heat to low and simmer until pasta is al dente’. Then drain cooked pasta and add to the skillet. Top with shredded cheese if desired.

Yield: 4 servings.
