Simply amazing Chicken and Bacon Supreme Pasta

I love baked pasta. And this Chicken and Bacon Pasta is my favorite. Full of cheese goodness, with bacon bits and cooked chicken. That’s a perfect dinner in my book!

I’ve added some green bell pepper and mushrooms to this recipe, trying to make a healthier dish, but let’s face it. It’s full of cheese, so if you’re on diet, don’t read this 🙂 It’s super delicious and super filling. You won’t be able to eat seconds 🙂
