Chicken Pasta With Sour Cream and Cheese Sauce (Zwt3 Western)

“I found this in Bernard Clayton's Cooking Across America. I've had this cookbook for years and it's the first thing I've made from it! The original name of the dish is "Pasta Prima Peschke", named for a chef on a ranch in Wyoming who made it up, but that's not very descriptive, so I changed it. I also changed some of the amounts - I only used half of the butter and bacon and chicken called for in the original and it was plenty.”
