I grew up with varieties of pasta dishes. I don’t know but for some reason my family just loves pasta. And one recipe that never fails to impress our taste buds is this Chicken-Bacon-Ranch Baked Penne. And just like the other pasta recipes that my Mom thought me, this too is very to make. I also love using different varieties of noodles/pasta for this like fusilli, rotini, or the classic penne. This pasta is full packed with cheese, chicken, bacon, ranch that’s been baked into a creamy casserole. For the chicken though, you can use leftover if any, or you can buy about 2lb of rotisserie chicken, it’ll make I think about 3 cups of meat already. And please don’t forget to sprinkle the top of the penne with chopped parsley for a fresh taste.


1 lb penne pasta, cooked and drained
2 cups of shredded cooked chicken
1 jar (15 oz) Alfredo pasta sauce
1/2 cup of ranch dressing
6 slices of chopped cooked bacon
2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)
Chopped parsley (optional)


Step 1: Prepare the oven by preheating it to 350 degrees F. Then, apply cooking spray onto a 13 x 9-inch pan.

Step 2: Combine1lb cooked penne pasta, 1 jar Alfredo sauce, half a cup of ranch dressing, and 2 cups of shredded cooked chicken. Mix well until all ingredients are well incorporated. Then, transfer into the prepared pan. Evenly spread the mixture.

Step 3: Sprinkle 6 slices chopped cooked bacon evenly over top, then dust with 2 cups or 8 oz of shredded mozzarella cheese. I like to use mozzarella cheese because it tastes good with this recipe but you can use any cheese you prefer.

Step 4: Chop the bacon into 6 slices and place on top of the mixture. Followed by 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese.

Step 5: Put in the oven and bake for 15 – 20 minutes until it appears to be foamy. Once done, remove from the oven and let it sit for about 5 minutes before you serve. Then, top with chopped parsley. Enjoy!
