Looking for a Thanksgiving dish to wow the crowd? Well, look no further! My Creamy One-Pot Pasta Bake with Chicken, Rosemary-Bacon, & Sundried Tomatoes is hearty, packed with flavor, and will give you a little taste of Italy!

How to make a pasta bake?

  1. All ingredients EXCEPT the pasta should be cooked (helps ensure there isn't any botulism). So first, fully cook the chicken and bacon.
  2. In a large bowl or oven-safe serving dish, toss together all ingredients until very well-combined.
  3. Cover with tin foil to bake 30-40 minutes.
  4. (Optional) Add additional shredded cheese.
  5. Bake uncovered for 8-10 minutes.

BEFORE BEING COOKED:

What is Batistini Farms?

Batistini Farms is a family-owned and operated business in NC that sells high-quality Italian foods. The husband-and-wife duo, Tom and Cindy, work closely with generations-old family farmers in Italy to provide only the finest products that'll happily feed a crowd and give you a little taste of Italy!

They offer a variety of 100% USDA Organic Italian Foods from Ancient Tuscan Grain Pastas to 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oils, Balsamic Vinegars, Dried Herbs, Ancient Tuscan Grain Flours, Vinaigrettes, & more!

What makes their 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oils different?

Every single olive oil is handcrafted from fresh organic olives and cold extracted within 24 hours of harvest. The olives are grown in rich soil, sustainable farming practices, and pruning techniques that yield thriving terroir from their family estate olive grove.

The difference? It is the most fresh olive oil you'll ever taste! They provide a dark bottle to keep the olive oil from spoiling and a harvest date to keep you informed that you have the most recent olive oil harvest!

In every bottle of Batistini Farms' olive oil, you'll be able to explore the fruitiness, green leaves, almonds, herbs, etc. with a bittersweet tingling piquant finish that is signature to a true, authentic 100% extra virgin olive oil.

What is Ancient Tuscan Grain Pasta? And why is it healthier than normal pasta?

Batistini Farms' Ancient Tuscan Grain Pastas are stone milled, slow dried the traditional way, and bronze drawn on a single Tuscan estate. It's packed with natural nutrition and is BY FAR the most amazing whole grain pasta taste!

It begins with harvesting of organic select grains, stone milling the seeds to flour, and then crafting the dough, cutting it by bronze, and patiently waiting for the slow drying of the pasta to keep with the old traditions.
