Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake

Here's a recipe that showed up in my Facebook feed that looked and proved to be quite delicious! The original post for this spicy pasta dish can be found here on Inside Bru Crew Life. I love fixing Buffalo Chicken Dip and just knew this would be as equally good. Any pasta dish is a rare dish around our house since we have moderated our carb intake. However, sometimes you just have to go there and enjoy a forbidden treat. 

I saw it one day; one of the girls I worked with fixed it that night, and told me it was divine. Needless to say, it was on our menu that weekend.I can't wait to prepare it again! I did not change the recipe at all and it was quite amazing as is.

8 ounces penne pasta (Cook, drain and set to the side)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup ranch dressing
1/3 cup Franks Buffalo wing sauce
2 cups chicken
1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
green onions, for garnish

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a small casserole dish with spray.

Stew and cut up chicken in bite-sized chunks.
Cook pasta per box directions. Drain and set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together the cream cheese, ranch, and hot wing sauce.
Blend in the chicken, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, and pasta.
Spoon into the prepared dish.
Sprinkle the remaining cheeses on top.
While the delicious yumminess is baking, chop up some green onions.
Bake until it's bubbly and the cheese is melted (around 25 minutes in my oven).
You can decorate with additional ranch dressing and green onions before serving.
