One Pot Cheesy Bacon Chicken And Pasta Recipe

Did you read my Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System review? If you did you know I think it’s awesome. I have been using it a lot and yes, this meal was made in it too. Check it out!

When I think of my favorite chicken sandwiches they all involve cheese, and many involve bacon. I have made this pasta recipe before on the stove, which took two pans. I decided to give it a whirl using the Ninja 3-in-1 cooking system. It isn’t pretty to look at but it tastes pretty good and is a very filling and tasty meal. In reality it’s no prettier this way then when made on the stove.  Here’s how I made it.

Cheesy Bacon Chicken And Pasta Recipe


  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 lb pasta shells
  • 16 oz Ragu Creamy Tomato Sauce
  • 4-8 oz shredded cheese (depending on how cheesy you like your food)
  • 16 oz sour cream
  • 1/2 cup crumbled bacon (I used Hormel)


With the cooking system on stovetop mode, brown the chicken. This takes a little under 10 minutes.

Pour the pasta shells over the chicken.

Pour the water over the cooked chicken.

Pour the sauce over top, also adding about 6 oz of water into the jar to get whatever didn’t come out.

Stir well.

Cook on high for about 10 minutes.

Our favorite is a garlic alfredo. Then we do add a little bit of bacon and frozen peas to the mix – perfect!

I love pasta and this looks like it is really easy to make using this cooking system. I would love to try to make this here at home.

I haven’t read your ninja cooking system review, but holy moly, this pasta dish looks sooo good! I think I’ll try making it in a regular saucepan.

Sounds like a great way to prepare casseroles and one dish meals.
