If you're looking for "chicken bacon ranch" this is not really the casserole for that. It's an amazing southwest casserole, though!

Category: main dish


8 ounces (half of a 1 pound bag) of penne pasta
1 pound of natural chicken breasts chopped into bite-sized pieces (or use 2 cups of already cooked chicken but I wouldn’t recommend canned chicken)
2-3 strips of bacon (we use the low-sodium version)
1/2 cup of diced green pepper (that used about 3/4 of the pepper. I probably would use the whole thing next time)
1/4 cup of diced red onion
1 cup shredded fresh spinach
1 can of evaporated milk
1 can of diced (drained) tomatoes (we usually get the no-salt added version. I need to figure out how to make the equivalent in fresh tomatoes)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups of shredded pepper jack cheese
1 cup of shredded mild cheddar cheese
1/2 cup ranch salad dressing (or more if you want to taste the ranch better)
small amount of olive oil
