Let's Make It
Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
Meanwhile, cook and stir chicken in large nonstick skillet on medium heat 8 to 10 min. or until done, adding broccoli for the last 2 min.
Drain pasta. Add to chicken mixture in skillet along with the Alfredo sauce; mix lightly. Cook 3 to 5 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently. Top with bacon and cheese.
Preparing Perfect Pasta
Follow the package directions to ensure that enough water is used for cooking the pasta. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente (tender but still a little firm to the bite), stirring frequently. To prevent pasta from sticking, add it slowly to plenty of boiling water and stir frequently while cooking. Adding oil to the cooking water is not recommended because some sauces may not cling to pasta coated with oil.
Prepare using thawed frozen broccoli florets.
Add 1/2 cup chopped red peppers to cooked chicken in skillet along with the broccoli.
