When you sink your teeth into a bite of this cheesy, melt-in-your mouth chicken pasta dish, you’ll instantly be addicted. It’s an easy meal that's the epitome of comfort food. In fact, it’s like a combination of a quick slow-cooker creamy chicken dish and a gooey mac and cheese all in one. Since it's cooked in the slow cooker, you know prep is a breeze.
A packet of ranch seasoning adds fresh, herby flavor in one easy step with no measuring required, but if you don’t have it, substitute a few pinches of dried herbs like dill, tarragon and parsley. Adding a handful of cooked, crumbled bacon along with the pasta certainly wouldn’t hurt anything, either. We can pretty much guarantee that your whole family is going to love this dish.
