Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta
Bacon, chicken, ranch, and cavatappi pasta.
½ pound bacon, chopped
1 red onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 ½ tablespoons ranch seasoning
1 can fire roasted tomatoes, drained
1 ½ cups heavy cream
1 pound rotisserie chicken, shredded
1 lb cavatappi pasta, or other curly pasta
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
½ – 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Parsley, chopped for garnish
Heat a large dutch oven, to med-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until the fat renders out and the
bacon is done, but still tender. DO NOT DRAIN. Lower the heat. Add the onion and saute until the
onion is soft and translucent; add in the garlic and saute until fragrant. Sprinkle the ranch seasoning
over the mixture and work it into the bacon and vegetables. Pour in the fire roasted tomatoes and
heavy cream, and heat through. Add the chicken, and simmer, until the chicken is heated through.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of well salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente;
according to package directions. Drain and add to the sauce, tossing to combine. If needed, add some of
the pasta water to thin the sauce.
Stir in the parmesan cheese. Serve hot, with parsley for garnish.
