I don’t know what it is about kids and ranch. They just love the stuff. So anytime I can make a dinner for them that has the flavor of ranch infused, I know it will be a hit. Cheesy Ranch Chicken Pasta had them licking the bowl and asking for more. I’ll be honest, I was in the same camp. It was so delicious I couldn’t stop grabbing a bite full.
OK, so I know by now I have already sold you on why you would want to make cheesy ranch chicken pasta, but I am going to go ahead and add another thing. It all cooks in one pot! Just one. If you are like me, this is an amazing discovery. My kids love it and it cleans up easy which means I am winning. There is a little bit of prep work to be done but if you do that, I am here to tell you the rest of your week will be a breeze too.
Garnish with parsley and serve! Yup, it’s just that easy.

To a large Dutch oven over medium heat, add the chicken broth, penne, and chicken mixture. Stir to combine and then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and then cover and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the pasta is cooked to your preference. There should still be some liquid in the pot when the pasta is done cooking.
Add the cream cheese to the dutch oven and stir until most of the cream cheese has melted.
