It's probably my roommates favorite meal I make: 1/2 box of pasta (rotini or penne are my preferences) 2 cooked chicken breasts (cut up) 2 cups mozzarella cheese 1/4 cup hot sauce 1 stick of butter 1/2 cup ranch dressing 1/2 cup milk 2 eggs salt and pepper to season basically mix it all together then add your choice of topping and bake for 20 minutes at 350. Breadcrumbs work well as topping but I like to mix it up with some Ranch Wheat thins, and a can of bacon flavored Pringles. Try it out!
