Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad

Yum Yum YUM! This salad is spicy, tangy, cheesy and down right amazing! The hot sauce gives the salad a kick, and the cucumber and ranch help to cool it back down again. It is easily going to become a go-to potluck dish in the future!


1 large can of canned chicken, drained and flaked
4 oz. extra sharp shredded cheddar cheese (or reduced fat mild)
1/2 cucumber, peeled and chopped
4 mini bell peppers (red, orange or yellow), seeded and chopped
3-4 Tbs. Frank's Red Hot Sauce
1/4 c. reduced fat Ranch dressing
2 c. cooked noodles (I like to use spiral)

Mix all of the above ingredients together in a large bowl. Start with a smaller amount of hot sauce and keep adding until you reach the right heat that you are looking for. You can always leave the option of letting people add more on top if they want it more spicy.
