Reviews for Buffalo Turkey with Linguine
"Heaven in a bowl. Period. Enough said! I will make this again and again!"
"I have been making this since it came out a couple of years ago. I love buffalo chicken and this is so quick and easy and tasty. I add extra seasoning after I dish up the little kids portions. I usually make with chicken and sometimes substitute flavored cream cheese. I always use reduced fat or whipped cream cheese and no one can tell."
"This was really good but I had to all a lot more buffalo sauce to it to be detected. The blue cheese was a nice touch and rounds out the flavors. Kind rich to be repeated too often though."
"I would leave out the hot sauce and the cheese. Otherwise it was very good"
"big hit with my husband"
