Buffalo Chicken Pasta Yumminess

It's been a while since I've tried a new Pinterest recipe, but we've been on a buffalo kick lately at the green fashionista household. Buffalo pretzels, light buffalo ranch on salads, buffalo chicken sandwiches, you name it we gobble it up!

So, when I came across this recipe for buffalo chicken pasta I knew we needed to try it out.

My finished product and it was delish!

1 16 oz. box of penne pasta cooked and drained

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cubed and cooked

1/2-1 cup of Franks Red Hot (I use the Buffalo style)

3/4-1 cup of ranch dressing (I use light ranch)

1-2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese (I use reduced fat cheddar cheese)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix together red hot and ranch dressing

In a separate bowl, mix together chicken, pasta, and cheddar cheese and then pour sauce mix over it and mix until combined.

Pour everything into a baking dish and sprinkle more cheddar cheese on top and bake for 20-25 minutes

Super easy and delicious for all of you buffalo lovers out there! It's enough to serve a small family of 3-4, but since it's just the 2 of us we had enough for dinner, seconds, and leftovers to take to work for lunch :)
