Garlic Parmesan Chicken Carbonara

Ok folks this is a recipe we keep the ingredients for at all times because it's our "backup" dinner if we can't come up with anything! We love it, never gets old, and doesn't take long. You really just throw it all in together! AND the left overs are almost better than the dinner! All you really need is chicken, noodles, veggies and sauce on hand... which is easy enough!

-Ragu Garlic Parmesan Alfredo Sauce (one bottle)
-2 to 3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
-3/4 box of Rotini (spiral) noodles
-Diced fresh OR Canned Diced Tomatoes
-1 cup peas OR 2 cups of chopped broccoli(optional)
-4 oz of cooked bacon or Bacon bits
-Sprinkle of Parmesan

*Dice up your Chicken, season (I use a LOT of Garlic Salt, Season All & Pepper) and cook in frying pan until done. Cook your noodles at the same time.
*Drain your chicken.
*Return chicken to large frying pan and add Alfredo sauce & remaining ingredients.(I like to rinse my Alfredo bottle with a little water, shake it up, and pour the rest back into my pan to scrape the bottle clean) Season again & Sprinkle with parmesan. Bring to boil and let simmer about 5 minutes. Noodles should be done by now.
*Combine Pasta noodles and sauce in a big bowl and that's it!
