<p>This instant classic combines the sassy flavor of buffalo chicken with the decadent flavor of cheesy mac and cheese. Add some crumbled bacon and the flavor of ranch dressing and you’ve got a casserole everyone will love.</p>

  1. In a 4 qt. saucepan, add 2 qts. water and 1 tsp. salt to a boil over medium-high heat. Add uncooked  pasta. Stir well, then reduce heat to medium. Cook for 10 minutes or until almost al dente. Do not drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine milk, cream cheese, hot sauce, dry ranch mix and ½ cup hot pasta water. Stir until smooth. Set aside.
  3. When pasta is almost al dente, drain well and add pasta, pulled chicken and crumbled bacon to the bowl of milk and hot sauce mixture. Fold mixture together until pasta and chicken are well coated. Transfer mixture to a greased 13” X 9” casserole dish.
  4. Place cheese slices slightly overlapping over the top of pasta and chicken mixture. Cover with foil. You can refrigerate until ready to bake. When ready to bake, pre-heat oven to 350 degrees, then place casserole dish on the middle rack. Bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Uncover and bake an additional 20 minutes or until cheese is well melted and pasta is hot. Sprinkle celery and green onions on top. Drizzle with additional hot sauce if desired. Serve.
