Looking for an easy and delicious dinner idea? These Spicy Bacon and Chicken Alfredo Stuffed Shells are full of flavor, and they can be made quickly for those busy nights.
I have officially gone over to the dark side.
The dark side of making dinner and posting it somewhat regularly. And I call myself a dessert blogger...
That's ok. Pasta is my all time favorite dinner thing to eat, so I am happy to share more delicious pasta recipes with you here instead of more desserts. Trust me...there will be plenty more desserts coming your way. But today we are talking pasta, cheese, and bacon.
Have you noticed a common ingredient in some of my pasta dinners? Alfredo Sauce!!!! Yup, I used it in this Loaded Chicken Alfredo Gnocchi Bake, and then I also shared a homemade version in this Bacon and Shrimp Alfredo Pasta. Alfredo rocks my world in jar and homemade form!
I also just realized that most of my pastas include bacon in them. Which is really kind of funny because I am not that big of a bacon fan. (Ducks to avoid all those virtual things being throw at my head! )
I think I realized that I must have been eating bacon wrong all these years. Apparently I do like it...as long as it is covered in tons of cheese and sauce! It's pretty tasty this way!
There was an extra box of shells sitting in my cupboard and an opened bag of opened bacon crumbles sitting in the fridge. Yes, I cheat and buy the precooked crumbled stuff from Sam's Club, just so I don't have to cook bacon. Don't hate on me for that! Plus, there was some cooked chicken in the fridge that needed used up, so it was time to create another fun and easy pasta dinner.
If you cook the noodles the night before, you can have this dinner on your table in about 30 minutes. I like to cook the shells and place them individually on a baking sheet to cool. Then toss them with some olive oil and refrigerate until needed.
Melt the cream cheese, stir in everything else, stuff the cooked shells, and then cover with Alfredo sauce and cheese! Then wait impatiently for the cheesy goodness to be done, so you can stuff your face! Sounds absolutely perfecto, right?
Our kids gobbled this one down in a hurry! Guess that means time to think up another fantabulous pasta idea!!!

I’m just visiting cos i was on a parade on Melissassouthernstylekitchen.com about stuffend shells.
Now i want to ask you for your recipe for homemade alfredosauce since i’m from the Netherlands and we don’t know Alfredosauce. I know the flavour, and loooooove it, cos we have been on vacation for 2,5 weeks in Florida, in Orlando to be exact. If you have such a recipe, will you please give me the link where i can find it?
Thanks a lot in advance!
Have a wonderfull day and enjoy the sunshine.
By the way....i love your cooking and writing style!

Wow, I made this tonight for dinner and was it a hit!!!! I thought I'd get two meals out of this, but my husband and son loved it so much they ate two helpings apiece. My daughter, who despises bacon (I know, really???) loved this pasta. Everyone asked that I make sure to keep this in my recipe file and add it to your fall/winter family favorites. Thanks so much for an easy, delicious recipe!!
Not too many ingredients, only a few steps - almost too good to be true!
