Ranch Chicken Pasta

This recipe is a mix of ranch, bacon, and pasta... three amazing things. Of course there is other good stuff in it, but those are my favorite. I found this recipe on My husband LOVED it.

Serves 2 to 4

 8 oz penne pasta
2 tbsp butter
1tbsp flour
2 tbsp ranch dressing mix
2 cups milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup cooked and chopped bacon (I used bacon bits for times sake)
2 cups cooked and cubed chicken

 Cook penne pasta according to instructions.
Meanwhile, cook cubed chicken in a large skillet.
 When chicken is browned set aside and drain juices from skillet. Melt butter in same skillet.
 Add flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring.
 Slowly whisk in milk and continue cooking until sauce thickens.
 Stir in ranch dressing mix and cheese. Stir until the cheese melts.
Add chicken, bacon, and cooked pasta and toss to coat. Let sit longer if sauce needs to thicken more.

From one newbie to another, enjoy!
