Pasta Cordon Bleu

A sinfully creamy pasta dish full of chicken and ham, this dish will warm your bones and fill your belly on a chilly winter day.


  • 1 box penne pasta I use Catelli Smart
  • 1 cup cream cheese I like to use low-fat
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream or half-and-half
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese separated
  • 1 chicken breast cooked & cubed
  • 3/4 cup diced cooked ham
  • 3 slices bacon cooked & chopped
  • Bread crumbs


  1. Heat cream cheese in a pot over medium-low heat until melted. Stir in whipping cream until completely combined with cream cheese. Add in onion powder, garlic salt and pepper. Stir in 1 cup of the cheese until it has melted and your sauce is a smooth consistency.
  2. Cook pasta until al dente. Drain. Bring pasta back to pot and cover with the sauce, mixing well. Add chicken, ham and bacon to the pasta, mixing well.
  3. Pour the pasta mixture into a greased 9x13 dish. Sprinkle the other 1/2 cup of Swiss cheese on top followed by a layer of bread crumbs.
  4. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes or until heated through.
