one pot Chicken bacon ranch pasta recipe

I love a good one pot meal.  Since Will hates to wash pots, I don’t like having a ton to wash myself.  This is a really great simple recipe that could have a ton of variations.  It was super rich though.  I think next time I’ll do half mozzarella half cheddar cheese.
