This chicken & bacon alfredo pasta bake is creamy and delicious..I was able to bulk it up with extra chicken since it is now a zero point food. It’s an easy dish to whip up that I am sure the family will love. Serves 6 at 6 smart points each on the freestyle program.

  1. I made this a few nights ago and it was AMAZING! What’s not to love about pasta and cream sauce? I left the bacon off since we didn’t have any and substituted skim milk for the almond milk. I didn’t have quite enough chicken for the 10oz, but it was delicious all the same. The 9×13 pan was far too big for the recipe, but this could have been due to not including the amount of chicken the recipe called for. Next time, I will make this in a 8×8 or 9×9 square pan. Other than that, LOVED IT and will definitely make again!

    This looks so awesome – can’t wait to try it! I’m curious about the brand of pasta and sauce you mention above. I’ve never seen it in any stores; is it available stateside; is the nutritional value better or does it just taste better?

      Hi Susan, I am in Canada and these are Canadian products, that said I am sure you can find a whole wheat high fiber type pasta near you as well as a lightened up alfredo sauce. I use these to keep the points down, to me they taste just like regular pasta and sauces..

      Hi, sure.. the ranch adds a nice little taste but it’s fine to omit if that’s your preference

  3. Thank you thank you thank you I made this for my family and they all love to my two year old my 8 year old son and my husband I was so happy so thank you it was delicious

      That’s awesome to hear 🙂 Glad it was enjoyed by all.. I know how hard it can be to get kids to eat certain things believe me 😉

  4. Just to make sure I read the directions correctly, you don’t pre-cook the pasta, right? It cooks while baking in the sauce?

  5. I just made this tonight and will definitely be adding this to my go to recipes! It was simple and delicious! I can’t wait to try more of your recipes. Tomorrow will be the Reese’s banana bread! 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed the pasta bake Ashley and hope you love that banana bread as much as I did 🙂

  6. This may be a stupid question, but about how big/much was one serving of this? 1/2 cup? A cup?

      Hi Angela, it’s not a stupid questions at all! I make all my pasta bakes in a 9×13 dish and cut into equal servings, I don’t really measure but I’d say at least 1 cup, just cut 6 equal servings based of your dish used and then points will be as to serving

  7. Writing this now as I’m eating some of it as leftovers. This is sooo good! Going down in my favorites until I’m sick of it. The bacon adds a great taste also. Yum!!

  8. I make a chicken Alfredo dish myself but I thought to try this one, and ya know my family loved this one better than the one I usually make. So from now on this is my goto recipe for chicken Alfredo. Thanks.

    This dish is so good. I made it for the first time tonight and it was a hit even with my 7 year old son. Husband said he could eat this meal often.

      Yay, that is so awesome to hear 🙂 So glad you all enjoyed

  10. I made this for dinner tonight but when I entered everything into my weight tracker it came up with 17 sp per serving. Did I do something wrong? I used all the same ingredients.

      Hi Sarah, yikes, I am not sure.. possibly a different brand bacon or pasta, plus the pasta sauce I use is a reduced fat, was yours? Products can vary depending where you live.. So I am not sure what brands you used, and did you make sure you entered the servings correctly??

  11. Made this tonight and the CHEESY CHICKEN & BROCCOLI ALFREDO BUBBLE UP yesterday LOVED both of them soooo good! My hubby loves all the surprise meals he’s getting lately. lol 🙂
