Buffalo chicken pasta bake

August 30, 2015

I love this pasta bake, it is a family favorite in my house, and you all know I am a huge buffalo chicken fan. This spicy pasta bake is a simple dish the whole family can enjoy, with just a few ingredients and all for only 6 smart points per serving based on the new freestyle weight watcher program. Makes 6 servings in a 9×13 casserole dish, each serving is about 1 heaping cup.
