Ingredients
  

  • 24 uncooked jumbo pasta shells
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup half and half
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 oz ranch seasoning mix
  • 2 cups chicken (cooked and shredded)
  • ¾ cup bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • 1 cup cobly jack cheese (shredded)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 3 quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Cook pasta shells according to package directions. Drain and then set aside. (tip run with cold water to cool to touch)
  • In a sauce pan melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth and bubbly about 1-2 minutes. Slowly add in broth while whisking.
  • Slowly add in half and half and then cream cheese. Stir until creamy and smooth then season with ranch seasoning mix.
  • Add 2-3 spoon fulls of mixture to the bottom of your casserole dish.
  • To the remaining mixture add in cooked chicken and cooked bacon then mix.
  • Spoon this mixture into each pasta shell then place in your casserole dish.
  • Top all stuffed shells with shredded cheese. Bake 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and serve. Optional: garnish with fresh parsley.

Notes

Once cooked and drain I like to run cold water through my pasta. This way it's cool to the touch when you are ready to stuff.

Serving Options:

For garnish I topped mine with fresh chopped parsley.
You can serve with with steamed veggies, salad, or garlic bread.
