Even halved, this made too much for my husband and myself. I thoroughly enjoy a good spicy meal, but I must have messed up the ratios somewhere because this was a little too spicy for me to eat. My husband, however enjoyed it and had seconds. It was very rich even though I used skim milk, which is a good thing. I like that even though it's supposed to be a healthy meal, it still had the comfort food feel to it. I used medium sized shells (like in Velveeta) and flour (instead of the cornstarch) because that was what I had on hand. I don't think I'll be making this recipe again.
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.

This was very good!! I did take advantage of some other comments and doubled the hot sauce and added a bit of extra blue cheese. As an added bonus..I crushed a package of Ritz crackers with 1/4 cup of melted butter and added it to the top of the dish. It gave a little crunch to the meal. It was great!!
My husband and I found this recipe to be very bland! I even marinade the chicken in Frank's Wing Sauce as suggested. I find that the milk/cornstrach mixture is over powering. Perhaps cutting that in half would help. Also, I do think that Frank's Wing Sauce vs. Frank's Hot Sauce makes a big difference. If I were ever to make this again, I would definately use the Hot Sauce. I would also add diced tomatoes for some more flavor and nix the pasta. Perhaps rolled up in a wrap might be nice.
Seriously good! I doubled the blue cheese and Frank's Red Hot sauce and I used 2% milk, and it was awesome! My husband loved it and our 17 month old even had a few tastes from my plate and was licking her fingers and lips! I will definitely make this again!
This is the ONLY bad recipe that I have ever made from Eating Well, we actually threw it out.
