    Bill Hilbrich's Note:

    This simple complete one dish meal can be made from scratch or use canned chicken. If you want to make your own ranch dressing start with 1/3 cup buttermilk and 1/3 cup sour cream and play with the amounts. Cooking is a Creative Sport.

      Yum!! My husband is out of town, and as he hates Ranch dressing, while he's gone I'm making things he doesn't like but I do! I used pre-made ranch dressing, penne pasta, and sprinkled in some mozzarella cheese (it melted in) just for fun. I might try parmesan next time. So yummy, I'm loving it!

      HOLY GOODNESS!! I made this for dinner last night and everyone except my teenager had seconds...he had THIRDS!! I used my homemade ranch, a little extra bacon, penne, the meat from a rotisserie chicken and then topped it with fresh parmesan shavings. Absolutely quick, easy, and best of all...delicious! When I plan my weekly menu on Sunday evenings, each family member gets to choose a meal...needless to say, this was unanimously requested! You've got to try it for sure.

      This rocks!! I used a combination of 3 Peppercorn Ranch & Hidden Valley to equal one cup. I also used Grocery store rotisserie chicken and upped the bacon to three slices. I sauted the onion in the drippings but added about 1 teaspoon of butter as they seemed dry. I used a large "chicken fryer" frying pan for all but the pasta. Once bacon and onion were done, I added everything but the pasta and cheese. Simmered 5 - 10 minutes, tossed in undrained pasta and tossed. Then added shredded parmesan. Fantastic. This will end up as a staple in my house. Even fussy eleven year old liked it.
