Our family loves pasta of all sorts. We have many favorite recipes, but when I want just a little bit of kick we turn to Buffalo Chicken Pasta. It is a creamy pasta dish with just the right amount of heat for this mama who does not like it too hot. The best thing about the dish is that you can just add in more hot sauce if you need a little more fire!
The Buffalo Chicken Pasta recipe was introduced to us by my cousins and has been in our dinner recipe rotation for many years. It is easy to make and the kids like it too. Try it out and let me know what you think!
