Buffalo Chicken Pasta 

This buffalo chicken pasta is a spin on mac and cheese. Tender pasta and five different types of cheese make this cheesy pasta dish the ultimate comfort food! This recipe may be simple to make, but the flavor is anything but. Spicy buffalo wing sauce takes center stage and works so well with tender pasta.
