Ingredient List
For the Pasta Bake:
  • 10 ounces penne pasta
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup ranch dressing
  • 1/3 cup Frank’s RedHot buffalo sauce
  • 2 cups shredded, cooked chicken
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Preheat oven to 375oF and spray a 9×13-inch casserole dish with cooking spray.

  • Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and rinse in hot water to prevent sticking.

  • Stir together the cream cheese, ranch dressing and buffalo sauce until creamy.

  • Add the chicken, ½ cup mozzarella cheese and cooked pasta to the cream cheese mixture and stir to combine. Spoon into the prepared dish.

  • Combine the remaining two cheeses and sprinkle over the top of the pasta.

  • Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, or until cheese on top is melted.

  • Serve immediately with sliced green onions, hot sauce and ranch drizzles if desired.

Recipe Notes
  • Leftover rotisserie or canned chicken both work great to shorten prep time for this meal.

    Use a little more buffalo sauce than it calls for to make it a bit spicier.

    The pasta bake and the sliders will both freeze well so make an extra to have another time!
