Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake
Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Cook fettuccine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain, rinse, and set aside.Advertisement
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking pan.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter and warm olive oil together in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add cubed chicken, onion, and garlic and cook until chicken is heated through, 2 to 4 minutes. Pour in cream and buffalo sauce. Mix well and heat through.
Combine mozzarella and Gouda cheeses in a bowl. Sprinkle in potato starch. Add mixture to sauce and stir constantly until cheese is melted. Remove from heat. Add fettuccine and mix to combine. Transfer mixture to the prepared baking pan.
Combine 3 tablespoons melted butter and panko bread crumbs in a small bowl and sprinkle on top of the noodles. Top with Colby-Monterey Jack cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and browned, about 20 minutes.
If you want to make a pasta dish versus a pasta bake, stop at step 5 and add 1/4 cup of milk slowly to the sauce until desired consistency is reached. Serve with the pasta.
