I had something similarly to this at a restaurant once and it was very yummy. I made this at home the other night and my boys loved it.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Butter, Garlic, Onions, Salt & Pepper, and Chicken Tenderloins- add butter to skillet... sauté garlic, onions salt and pepper add chicken and brown- make sure chicken is white in the middle. Set aside on a plate to drain.
2
Rotini pasta- cook according to package and drain.

( if you have to leave pasta setting for more then 10-15 min add 1-2 Tsp. of olive oil or butter to pasta and cover with a lid)

Alfredo sauce- I start making my homemade Alfredo sauce while pasta is cooking

if using one from a jar just make sure its heating up while your pasta is cooking.

( My homemade Alfredo sause is on my profile pg. )
3
Alfredo sauce - add a cup at a time to cooked pasta mix will. Depending on how creamy and thick you like your sauces about 3-4 cups add to pasta

( if Alfredo sauce is to thick add 1/4-1/2 c. of milk to thin out sauce.)

Cooked Chicken- chop into small bite size add to pasta along with the saute onions and garlic, mix well
4
Cooked Bacon- chop and add to pasta mix.
( if not already cooked you can start cooking bacon in the first step )

Put pasta mix in a deep baking dish sprayed with cooking oil..

Cheese- layer a few big spoon full of pasta mix on bottom add a cup of cheese, repeat once...any remaining Alfredo sauce add to top with some bacon pieces.

Basil- roll the leaf up and slice in small strips add to top.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 45mins

The last 10mins take off foil.
