  • 3/4 cup cooked penne pasta
  • 2 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 avocado chopped
  • 3 oz chicken breast cooked and diced
  • 1 small tomatoes diced
  • 2 large large eggs hard boiled and chopped
  • 1 oz blue cheese crumbled
  • 3 tbsp Ranch dressing


  • Put a chicken breast in a pot of water to simmer for 20-25 minutes, until cooked through. Put the eggs in a small pan and cover with cold water. Bring the pot to a boil, then cover and remove from heat. Leave the eggs covered for 10-12 minutes. In a third pan, bring water to a boil, add salt, and cook the pasta to al dente, around 8 minutes.
  • Add bacon to a pan and fry for around 4 minutes per side. When done, move them to a paper towel to soak up the grease.
  • Chop the avocado, tomatoes and blue cheese.
  • As the chicken, eggs and pasta finish cooking, drain the water. Add the eggs to a bowl of ice water to chill for about 5 minutes before cracking and peeling. Chop the eggs and the chicken.
  • Add the pasta to the serving bowls. Distribute the chopped ingredients among the bowls. Then top with Ranch dressing.
