Cooktop Cove: How to make bacon ranch pasta in a slow cooker
Ranch dressing has quickly become the dressing of the moment and it's moved on from just being that little tub next to your raw carrots and celery. These days it goes on everything, and that includes this delicious pasta dish. First, the chicken goes into the slow cooker and bubbles away in a sauce made of chicken soup and Ranch dressing. Then cooked noodles and crisp bacon are added, cheese is melted over top, and you've got a delicious supper that took only a few minutes to pull together.
I've made this before, using both Ranch flavor packets and the actual dressing on separate occasions. I find that the flavor packets don't really bring that ultra Ranch flavor you're probably craving when sitting down to this dish, and so I opt for a cup of the actual dressing instead. And I have to say, it may just be Ranch's finest hour.
