Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne Recipe

For six months now I have been obsessed with all things buffalo chicken thanks to my friend Lindsay who first introduced me to Buffalo Chicken Dip! I now think of all the ways I can incorporate buffalo chicken into new recipes. From burgers to tacos to this new yummy dish, I’ve found some interesting ways to spread out my obsession over several genres of food!

Today I will be sharing with you my newest creation, Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne.

Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne Pasta

♣ Vegetarian Option: Omit the chicken.  The spicy, cheesy buffalo sauce is so good on its own, you could definitely do it without chicken! Also, use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

♦ Gluten Free Option: Use gluten-free pasta. Make sure the blue cheese dressing is gluten-free. Ken’s Blue Cheese Dressing is what I used in this recipe & it is gluten-free!
