My family loves a little spice –  I made a buffalo chicken dip before and my family went crazy for it – the recipe is on this site let me know if you want me to find it for you

Anyways – I thought it would be fun to take the elements of a buffalo chicken dip and pair it with some pasta – I used Barilla’s gluten free pasta so I could enjoy the dish as well

I made a bunch of dishes the same day I made this – and this one was my mom’s favorite 🙂

So I really did not know what type of blue cheese dressing to get – I ended up getting the chunky kind… It worked out well – though next time I will use the light version and see if the taste is affected too much

Oh do you see the ginger knob in the picture…. thanks Dad. No there is no ginger in the recipe.

I finished off the dish with green onions and red pepper flakes 🙂 I decided to mix everything in the cast iron skillet since it meant dirtying tons of dishes… plus I love the look of it ( I do not love the weight — that pan is like 10 pounds)
