Buffalo Chicken Pasta Casserole

Don't you love the smell of wing sauce?  I know I do but I don't eat wings because I just can't bring myself to eat meat from a bone.  I do love pasta though so this mixes a couple awesome flavors to make an incredibly pleasing casserole.  It even is a hit with my picky eater so that makes me happy. I am sure if you like Wings or the flavor of Wings you will really enjoy this recipe!

I have made this a couple times now and each time it is a hit!  My mom actually came across this recipe and she made it for Super Bowl and it was gobbled up immediately.  Then I made it and the guys loved it and so did I so I now have added it to my favorite meals category.

You will need:
3 Cups shredded cooked chicken
1/3 Cup Frank's Wing Sauce
1/3 Cup Ranch dressing
6 to 8 ounces Egg noodles or pasta of your choice
1 14oz Jar of Alfredo sauce
1/4 Cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 Cup shredded cheddar cheese divided
6 slices of Provolone cheese for top
Optional: Blue Cheese crumbles
 Prepare your noodles and drain. Also prepare your chicken--shredded or chunks of chicken work well in this recipe.  Place your Wing sauce, Ranch dressing, Alredo sauce, 1/4 cup cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese in a bowl and mix well.  *If you are using Blue Cheese add it to the casserole instead of just on top or if you have some that like it and some that don't just serve it on the side.  Add chicken and combine.  Add in prepared and drained noodles and make sure everything is well coated in your sauce mixture.
Pour into a greased casserole dish and top with remaining cheddar and provolone cheeses.  I use my food processor and chop up my slices of Provolone but you wouldn't have to do this step.  Bake at 350 for about 20 to 30 minutes until bubbly and browned on top.
Serve with some chopped green onions, a salad and some fresh bread and you are all set.  Add a little extra wing sauce if you want a bit more of a kick!

As you can tell from the photos I have made this several times and each time it is a hit!  The photo above was made with chunks of chicken instead of shredded chicken and parsley instead of green onions.  Either way has been a hit with us!
What's not to love--pasta, wing sauce, cheese and chicken!

  1. This recipe sounds delicious, and combines all my favourite things I love ranch and franks red hot together and sounds delicious with the shredded chicken and pasta, oh darn now I'm hungry. Found from Frugal Friday.
