Chicken and Bacon Alfredo Bake

This was not at all what I intended to make. I intended to make a completely different recipe using chicken, bacon and mushrooms that really needed using and no pasta. However, when it came to it, I couldn't find that recipe so I used this one instead! I also meant to put mushrooms in and totally forgot so they go served on the side. This bake was however, really tasty, even if it wasn't what I meant to do!!

Chicken and Bacon Alfredo Bake (from Must Have Mom)
(Serves 6)

360g dried pasta shapes
3 chicken breasts
425g jar Alfredo sauce
250g ricotta or cottage cheese
2 eggs beaten
25g Parmesan cheese, grated
handful fresh parsley, chopped
6 slices bacon
170g mozzarella cheese, grated

Preheat the oven to 180C.

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions.
Meanwhile, heat a little oil in a frying pan and cook the bacon and chicken until browned.
Once the pasta is cooked return it to the pot and toss with the alfredo sauce until coated.
Spray 23cm x 33cm pan with cooking spray and place half of pasta mixture into the dish.
Mix together the ricotta or cottage cheese, parsley, egg and Parmesan. Spread over the pasta. Add the chicken and bacon as the next layer pushing them down into the cheese mixture. Add the remaining pasta mixture and top with the mozzarella. Put into the oven and bake for 30 mins until golden and bubbling.
