Crockpot Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Pasta

A few months ago, a friend of mine on Facebook posted that they were making this dish for dinner one night. I immediately headed on over to Pinterest and searched stalked her boards until I found the recipe. Still, it sat all alone and neglected on my own ‘to try’ board for quite some time. I’d almost completely forgotten about it. Lucky for me, I was totally un-inspired for dinner a few weeks ago and went through all 1,283 pins on that board looking for a recipe spoke to me. This didn’t speak so much as shout, ‘EAT ME,’ at me.

That night, after devouring this amazing crockpot pasta, the hubs and sons all looked at me like I was insane for not having made then and I just stared back at them innocently, like “I’m not the only one who can search Pinterest and throw ingredients in the crockpot, little sweeties.”

Simple, totally indulgent, delicious. You need this in your life.

  3. One dish meals are a favorite of mine this time of year. There’s something so comforting about casseroles when the cooler weather strikes. Delicious flavors in this one…quite reminiscent of the buffalo chicken dip my husband and daughter love so much. Thanks for bringing it along for the Fiesta Friday celebration!

  5. How interesting, I didn’t know you could cook noodles in the crockpot either. Great idea, then you don’t have to worry too much about it. It’s a good dish to walk away from, then come home to after a hard day 🙂
