The flavor of this is pretty good, and it was easy to make, but the Frank's Wing Sauce makes it so salty we can barely eat it. If I made it again I'd probably cut the amount of sauce.

This was easy to make and tasted even better the second day!

I cut this recipe in half and put it in my 3 quart slow cooker and I think it worked out well! I used a tomato basil pasta sauce and Sweet Baby Ray's buffalo wing sauce. It was pretty spicy! I didn't use the full amount of ground chicken because it was a leftover from another dish. I also didn't have the full amount of ricotta (oversight by me). I wish I had had all the ricotta and I might have even added a bit more in to quell the heat. I used the feta instead of bleu cheese (my husband isn't a fan). The red pepper gives this a great little crunch, just an extra texture, which was really nice. Because my slow cooker runs hot, the meal was done in about 2 hours. Very yummy, and I ate my entire bowl, despite hating spicy food. I did add a bit more mozzarella on top to help with the heat in mine ;) I'd make this again.

Excellent recipe. The red pepper really adds to the dish.

This went over well at my house. I did make some modifications. I used cut up boneless chicken breast and made my own buffalo sauce (doubled the amount called for) It was very rich and delicious. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Heidi.

I made with roast chicken not ground, used 3/4 cup hot sauce and 3 1/4 cup tomato sauce. Didn't cook noodles. Very good.

I made this and my family loved it. I added extra of both sauces to make sure it didn't end up on the dry side. My family likes lasagna extra saucy though :)
