Buffalo chicken is a favorite in our household. Combine it with pasta and you have the ultimate comfort food. If you prefer less spicy food, the addition of sour cream, ranch dressing and mozzarella provides a creamy texture that nicely balances the spice. —Kathy White, Henderson, Nevada

"Loved this pasta dish! The level of "heat" can be adjusted by decreasing or increasing the hot sauce, but we loved at the amount it called for. I also baked it in the oven vs. the crockpot & it turned out perfect."

"If you like buffalo chicken wing dip, I think you should give this dish a try! It is very tasty and filling. One thing I changed was the amount of Buffalo wing sauce. I used hot sauce according to taste because most in my family don't like super hot flavored dishes."
