Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! We have a busy middle of the week, so I LOVE these remix options! We had the Buffalo Chicken sandwiches last night. I totally impressed myself by whipping up something so yummy. But I think this Buffalo Chicken Pasta is even better! My seven year old went back for seconds and my husband (man of few words) said, "This is great." Yes! In case you have a little bit left over, it's also delicious cold at 9pm!
