Chicken Ranch Pasta

Even though I have my 4 Week Dinner Menu that I made and love, every now and then I like to try a new recipe.  I came across this Chicken Ranch Pasta recipe on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a try.  My kids love pasta and my husband loves bacon.  And who doesn't like cheese?  

It was super tasty.

Even my picky 2 year old ate it.

Try it out and see what you think.  We will definitely be making this recipe again.

Chicken Ranch Pasta
(Recipe from Plain Chicken:):
8 oz penne pasta
1 T butter
1 T flour
2 T dry ranch dressing seasoning mix
2 c milk
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 c cooked, chopped bacon
2 c cooked, chopped chicken

In a large pot, cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain and set aside.

In the same pot, melt butter.  Add flour and stir.  Cook flour for 1 minute.  Slowly whisk in milk.  Continue cooking until sauce thickens.  Stir in ranch dressing mix and cheese.  Stir until cheese melts.  Add chicken, bacon, and pasta.  Stir to coat.
