Creamy Chicken & Bacon Pasta

I Had a difficult time in naming this dish - I found the recipe named as Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta HERE

Usually I'll stick to the original author's recipe name, but the way I had re-done this .. uh, uh think not.

Did I go smash up a recipe..? I think I did {whink} - all started out okay, but whilst this and that were frying and cooking, I decided to use the recipe, but with some adapting ... you know what? .. to tell the truth I found a very good recipe and it was totally do-able, but no way, I had to do it my way.

Not sorry, though, it was awesome!   {And it really does taste like Chicken Cordon Bleu ! }

Feel free to first check out the original recipe and then mine - you decide whether I smashed it and should've followed the recipe.

Creamy Chicken & Bacon Pasta

500g Penne Pasta
2 cups Fresh Cream
250g (8 oz) Cream Cheese
2 t Dried Onion Flakes
1 t Garlic Salt
1 t Salt
1/2 t Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 1/2 cups Mozzarella, grated
750g Chicken Fillets, cooked and cubed
250g Bacon Bits, fried crispy
250g Sliced Ham, cut into small pieces
Finely chopped Parsley (optional)

1.) Boil the Pasta as per instructions on bag - drain and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
2.) While the pasta is cooking, melt the Cream cheese in a medium pot over low heat - Once melted add the Fresh Cream and stir until combined - Add the Onion flakes, Garlic salt, Salt and Black Pepper, stir, then add the Mozzarella cheese - stir until smooth. Remove from heat.
3.) Add the Chicken, Bacon, Ham and the Cream Cheese sauce to the Pasta in the large mixing bowl - Mix it all up - transfer to a serving dish, garnish with finely chopped Parsley and serve.

This dish is very rich and no side dish or salad is necessary.

Till later,
