Let's Make It
Mix first 3 ingredients until blended.

Add chicken to reserved drippings in skillet; sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Cook 5 min. or until chicken is evenly browned, stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet.
Heat remaining drippings in skillet. Add mushrooms; cook and stir 2 min. Return chicken and bacon to skillet along with the broth mixture and 1/4 cup parsley; cook 10 min. or until chicken is done and sauce is thickened, stirring frequently. Meanwhile, cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
Drain pasta. Add to ingredients in skillet; cook and stir 1 min. Top with cheese and remaining parsley.
