This pasta dish has all the flavors of Buffalo chicken wings, and you don't have to get your fingers full of hot sauce. It's made on the stovetop and is finger-licking good!

Instructions Checklist

  • Season chicken with ranch dressing mix, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Set aside.

  • Meanwhile, combine Neufchatel cheese, sour cream, and Buffalo wing sauce in a large saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until well combined, about 3 minutes. Add Cheddar cheese and stir well until melted. Add pasta and chicken and continue cooking until well incorporated and heated through.

Cook's Notes:

Any pasta will work in this dish.

Regular cream cheese can be used in place of Neufchatel cheese.

This was good added some onions threw it in a casserole dish cooked it for an extra 5 minutes with some cheese and an added decoration of hot sauce Would recommend using a hotter sauce or more of it for my fellow masochists. Read More

My kids loved this. Taste just like you’re eating the dip but with pasta. I added a whole pound of cooked rigatoni and it was good. Next time I may add some cream/milk to make it more creamy as it was a little think. Read More

I made this tonight and with the exception of a couple of changes due to what I had on hand and personal preference. I guess I am not much of a masochist because the amount of hot wing sauce was enough. I did add roughly 1/2 cup of milk to thin the sauce a bit. I also used half cheddar and half swiss. I baked it in the oven with a little cheese on top at 375° for 20 mins. Delicious! Read More
