  • 1 16 oz box Bowtie Pasta
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1 pint half and half heated
  • 1/4 Cup + 2 TBSP butter
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 grilled chicken breasts roughly chopped
  • 6 slices bacon cooked, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup Roasted green chile Chopped
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs


  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare pasta according to the package directions
  • Meanwhile, melt 1 stick of butter in a medium-size saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, saute lightly, add the Hatch green chile and heat
  • Break the three eggs in a separate dish and scramble, set aside
  • Pour the half and half in a bowl and heat in the microwave (do not boil)
  • As soon as the pasta is done, drain and place back in the pot.

This is where it’s nice to have a second set of hands

  • While pasta is still hot, add the butter mixture and gently mix, immediately add the eggs a little at a time while continuing to mix allowing the heat of the pasta to cook the eggs
  • Add the parmesan cheese and mix until combined then add the heated half & half and stir
  • Mix in the cooked chicken and bacon pieces
  • Pour into 4 individual bakings dishes or a 7 X 5 baking dish filling to the very top
  • Melt two tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan, add the panko crumbs and stir until butter is absorbed and panko crumbs are golden brown. Top the pasta with the panko crumbs
  • Place the casserole dish or dishes on a baking sheet and back in the oven for 15 minutes
  • Remove, allow to rest for 5-10 minutes prior to serving.
