Slow Cooker Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Pasta
An indulgent creamy pasta dish that will change how you make pasta forever.
In between rice, mashed potatoes and bread, pasta is another dish that my kids will never get tired of. My eldest child loves anything that is super cheesy. So when I found this recipe, I just couldn’t help myself from trying it out as soon as I could.
This has totally made its way to my kids’ favorite food list. And it actually made number one for my eldest. The creaminess is just to die for and I got addicted myself with it. You can lessen the cheese if you are not much of a cheese lover, but if you feel like you want more, add as much as you want.
Check out the recipe below.

My son would usually request that I add a whole lot more. But I only do it for his own set as I enjoy the original recipe better than the overloading cheese he wants. To each his own right. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did.
