Rotel Chicken Penne Pasta with Bacon

Pasta is my favorite meal to not only cook but eat. 

I think I love it because it is easy to make but also because there are a lot of different meal variations that you can make with it. 

Here are some of my favorites that I have made my family:

One-Pot Bacon Parmesan Spaghetti 

Chicken Carbonara Pasta Bake  

Pizza Spaghetti

Chicken Spinach Pasta with Bacon  

If you haven’t noticed, I tend to choose white sauce over red sauce.

This time, I decided to change my pasta dish up and not use any sauce. 

My kids love Rotel dip and since I could not only live off of Rotel dip but would also be happy to swim in it, I decided to make Rotel Chicken Penne Pasta with Bacon. 

I knew my kids would love it and I knew that it would be a quick and easy meal to make, which is important because since school started, we are busy.
