cheesy ranch chicken pasta

This is a quick and tasty pasta dish for those busy nights. This recipe comes from life as a lofthouse

8 ounces dried pasta (I used penne)
1 Tablespoon butter
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
2 Tablespoons flour
1 packet dry ranch dressing seasoning mix
2 cups milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup chopped, cooked bacon

Directions: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add dried pasta and cook according to package directions. Drain water.

Meanwhile, heat butter over medium-high heat, in a large skillet. Add the chicken pieces, and cook until no longer pink. About 10 minutes.

Once chicken is thoroughly cooked, sprinkle the flour and packet of ranch seasoning over the chicken. Stir. Pour milk into the skillet, and continue to stir and cook until mixture starts to thicken. Stir in cheddar cheese and bacon pieces. Stir until cheese melts.

Add the cooked pasta to mixture and stir to combine. Serve immediately!
