We loved this easy casserole! Prepared exactly as written with rave reviews. Definitely enough for a crowd and the leftovers are delicious as well. I plan to take this to our next football gathering where I'm sure no one else will be bringing anything similar.
Buffalo Chicken Casserole
From EatingWell: September/October 2010
We took the classic flavors of Buffalo wings—hot sauce, blue cheese, carrots and celery—and created a finger-licking-good casserole. Serve this dish during football season to a hungry crowd and it’s sure to be a hit. We don’t typically recommend ingredients by brand name, but in this case we make an exception for Frank’s RedHot Sauce. It has the perfect balance of spice and tang for this casserole. Texas Pete and Crystal hot sauces are suitable alternatives if you can’t find Frank’s.

I made this just as the recipe said with the exeption of a little extra hot sauce. There is no other way to say this but it just wasn't good at all. My friend said she liked it but I did not. I love the buffalo chicken dip but this with the wheat pasta didn't do it for me. Sounded good in theory but it stopped there. Sorry :(
Great recipe! My husband gave it a 8 out of 10! I halfed the recipe and made a few MINOR modificatoins: added more hot sauce; double if you have Frank's, and add as much as you can handle from Tabassco. I added more veggies and used 1/2 red onion and 1/2 yellow, added thyme and dijon to the veggie/chicken mix. I did add a bit of Bolthouse Farms yogurt blue cheese dressing and a bit extra reduced fat blue cheese. Melted the cheese in the mixture as well like other reviewers suggested. Sprinkled combo of oyster crackers, ritz, and french fried onion rings. YUM!!!
I made this recipe as is with no major modifications and loved it. My husband, who is from Buffalo, loved it to. But he's not a big blue cheese fan so suggested that in the future I substitute mozzarella for some of the blue cheese. Apparently that is the chosen alternate to blue cheese in Buffalo. And Frank's hot sauce is definitely the way to go.
True, I don't know how healthy the stuff is, if you use natural, organic products it seems pretty ok. Not a lot of processed stuff in it, but low cal it is not! I had to be careful not to eat too much at one sitting, it was so good it was hard not to. I plan in making this for the next football party I go to, it's sure to be a hit!
I'm in college and my roommate and I loved this! It lasted us each about three days for dinner! We used fully cooked cubed chicken from tyson, poured in half of the hot-sauce bottle, added spicy ranch seasoning packet and used low fat blue cheese. We also used 16 oz farfalle noodle to accomodate for 1.5 lbs chicken. So good! Came to about 420 calories per 1/8!
