Creamy Bacon Ranch Chicken Pasta

This sounds like it should be a very heavy, fattening dish, but by using the right ingredients, I've made it one that fits in with my family's healthier eating style. The bacon and ranch flavors make this an outstanding pasta dish that everyone in your family will love.



Ingredients:

6 slices Oscar Meyer Center Cut Bacon
4 4 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
2 T all-purpose flour
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing Mix
1 1/4 cup skim milk
8 oz Ronzoni Smart Taste Extra Wide Noodles
1 T Reduced Fat Parmesan Topping

Directions:

Cook bacon in microwave safe glass dish lined with paper towels. Cover with paper towel and cook on high three minutes or to desired crispness. Chop in to small pieces. Set aside.

In a large nonstick skillet, cook chicken until lightly brown. Sprinkle flour and salad dressing mix over the chicken and stir will. Stir in milk. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add bacon and stir.

Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions. Drain.

Serve chicken mixture with noodles. Sprinkle with Parmesan.

Makes 4 servings
