Can you believe that it’s almost time for the Super Bowl? Many of you know that we made a move from NY to NC over the summer and I have to admit that we’ve fallen in love with the Panthers. Not just because they’re in the Super Bowl, but we love the comraderie they have with the city. We plan on celebrating Super Bowl with a huge heaping of our Buffalo Chicken Pasta. It’s the perfect meal idea that everyone will love.

Anytime I think of football, I immediately think of spicy chicken wings. That’s largely due to the fact that my husband has programmed me this way. Football and wings go together in his world. Unfortunately, my girls are not huge fans of wings. They’d rather have pasta so I decided to merge the two with this Buffalo Chicken Pasta. It’s a match made in heaven and thanks to Perdue Perfect Portions it doesn’t get much simpler.
