Buffalo Chicken Pasta

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 and cooler flavor that nicely balances the spice in this buffalo chicken pasta dish. —Kathy White, Henderson, Nevada

    We thought this was delicious. Made exactly as written. The negative comments from Ruffshse are unnecessary. If you don't like it, you don't like it. To make a comment as "it was disgusting", is just if ig ignorant and immature. If it isn't for you, MOVE ON!

    This recipe is great if you love the taste of buffalo sauce. This dish is super creamy and rich tasting and it doesn't take much to fill you up.

    I made this for company, so loved the thought that I could prepare most of it ahead of time. The full cup of hot sauce was a little too much for my taste, but others at the table liked it. Turned out nice and creamy. Will make again, but not often, as it is pretty decadent.

    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.
