  • cooking spray

  • 1 (16 ounce) package farfalle (bow tie) pasta

  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cubed

  • 2 tablespoons ranch dressing mix

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  • 8 slices cooked bacon, divided

  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, shredded

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar Jack cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add cream cheese and ranch dressing mix; whisk until smooth. Slowly whisk in milk. Stir in Monterey Jack cheese; cook until cheese has melted and sauce has thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Crumble 6 slices bacon and stir into sauce.

  4. Combine cooked pasta and shredded chicken in a large bowl. Pour sauce on top and mix until well combined. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. Top with Cheddar Jack cheese and crumble remaining 2 slices of bacon on top.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese has melted, about 20 minutes.
