Buffalo Chicken & Blue Cheese Fettuccine Alfredo

Buffalo Chicken & Blue Cheese Fettuccine Alfredo from www.laurenslatest.comSo, I guess yesterday was the Oscars? TOTALLY missed the memo on that one! I’m sure I read about it somewhere….but considering my memory is crap and weekends are like a technological diet/sleepfest, I’m not surprised I missed it.

In other news, I’m turning into a buffalo/blue cheese addict. All of a sudden I’m craving the tangy buttery spiciness that buffalo and blue cheese are. It’s a classic combination that I threw off the deep end into “what the blank did she do” territory. Because I am crazy {and pregnant} I made some seriously tasty and super easy pasta. Buffalo Blue Cheese Mecca, basically.

Buffalo Chicken & Blue Cheese Fettuccine Alfredo from www.laurenslatest.com30 minutes to flavortown for this meal, plus it’s healthier than the real fettuccine alfredo! Probably not by much so don’t get your hopes up, but still!! Take the extra saved calories where you can get ’em! This was a little too spicy for my husband and daughter and on the verge of too spicy for me, but that’s the beauty of this recipe! Reduce the hot sauce and increase the sour cream as you like to adjust the heat level. Super easy to do! Serve with a nice salad and that’s dinner 🙂 Mmmm…..creamy spicy goodness. Git in mah belleh.

  1. I love absolutely everything that’s going on in this dish, Lauren. Awesome flavors, and it looks so pretty! I caught a total of 5 minutes of the Oscars, but the best part (the clothes, obviously) is easy to get caught up on after the fact.

  2. I love this combo. There use to be a little hole-in-wall place in Springvale, Maine (Stugatzi’s) that made a version of this…we would drive an hour and a half just for this dish.

  12. Buffalo sauce is the best mixed with a little blue cheese. I love this idea of doing a pasta dish using both of those. Looks wonderful! Pinning this for later.

  22. We have a sandwich shop here who injects their chickens with Tabasco sauce, roasts them, shreds the meat, douses with more sauce, builds the Sammy with wasabi mayo and jalapeño jack on a homemade bun. You will sweat!
