Buffalo Chicken Pasta
I love a good casserole.
Especially when it’s creamy, full of flavor, AND incredibly easy to make.
Fortunately for you, this easy buffalo chicken pasta bake has all three of those elements. And it’s so good.
It includes amazing ingredients, such as:
- Moore’s Creamy Ranch Buffalo Sauce (you can use Ranch dressing and buffalo sauce if you can’t find this)
- Alfredo Sauce
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Rotini Noodles
- Diced Chicken breast
You might remember when we created this delicious buffalo chicken alfredo a few months ago for a Moore’s Marinade recipe contest. Well, they had another contest, so we decided to try and win this time!
Let me tell you, if this doesn’t win, then that contest has got to be rigged. It has an amazing buffalo flavor that isn’t overpowering or too spicy and when you combine it with the alfredo sauce and cheese, it’s even better.
I was going to bake this in an 8×8 glass baking dish…but I got a little lazy and just put our ovenproof pan in the oven. So this can easily be a one-dish meal, or you can bake it in your baking dish. It’s up to you – I personally just like to minimize the number of dishes I have to clean 🙂
FAQs about this recipe
- Can it be frozen? Yep! Makes for a great freezer meal
- Can I make this in the slow cooker? I have never actually done this (I should though!) I think you could easily make this in the slow cooker – just put all the ingredients (except for the cheese topping) in and cook on low for three hours. Add the cheese toward the end and then broil (if you have an oven safe slow cooker pot)
- What brand of alfredo sauce? Honestly, they all taste pretty much the same to me, and I just buy whatever one is on sale.
- Can this be made the day before and refrigerated until it’s ready to cook? Absolutely! We’re all about meal prep around here.
- How many does this feed? 4-6, just depending on the size of the person eating.
PS – while this is delicious, it is VERY rich. Just take one of these beforehand, though, and you should be good to go!
