After draining and rinsing the pasta, heat 2 tablespoons oil in the pot and add 3 sliced carrots, 3 sliced celery stalks, 1 chopped onion and 1 tablespoon minced garlic and cook until beginning to soften. Add 2 pounds cubed chicken and cook until no longer pink on the outside. Next, add a mixture of 1/3 cup cornstarch and 4 cups low-fat milk. This creates a creamy sauce to replace the blue cheese dressing and mayo in traditional versions. Add 1/8 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil, stirring often until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Take the pot off the heat and add 5 tablespoons hot sauce . Spread the noodles in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and top with the creamy Buffalo chicken mixture. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup strong blue cheese . Bake at 400°F until bubbling, about 30 minutes.
