Creamy Chicken and Bacon Pasta

4.2
8 ratings
Creamy chicken pasta can be served in just 30 minutes with the perfect combination of creamy, cheesy, and smoky. Inspired by the classic carbonara, this bacon chicken pasta is made with cream cheese, basil, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and bacon. While the recipe calls for spaghetti noodles, other pasta types like penne, bowtie or ziti noodles will hold the creamy sauce well. Loaded with flavor, this is by far our favorite of the pasta and chicken recipes. Pure comfort food at its best, you can serve this with a refreshing Broccoli Salad, Caesar Salad or Grilled Romaine with Balsamic Vinaigrette and a crusty Herbed Bread to soak up any sauce left on your plate.
