And, of course, when in Rochester one must have Buffalo wings.

Speaking of Buffalo wings, if you are a fan then you will love this Baked Buffalo Chicken Pasta. Think Buffalo wings meet macaroni and cheese. All of those fabulous flavors tucked into one comforting casserole.

Ingredients:

1 pound pasta (I used orecchiette)
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 1/2 cups milk
4 ounces grated Monterey Jack cheese, plus more for topping
1/3 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese, plus more for topping
1/3 cup Buffalo wing sauce
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
For garnish: Chopped green onions, fresh cilantro, 1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese, additional Buffalo wing sauce

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375℉.

2. Prepare pasta according to package directions.

3. In a saucepan over medium heat melt the butter. Add the flour and whisk to create a roux. Cook for about 1 minute until mixture becomes a bit golden in color. Stir in milk, reduce heat to low, and continue stirring until mixture thickens. Add grated cheeses and continue to stir until smooth. Stir in Buffalo wing sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.

4. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Add pasta and chicken, then pour cheese sauce over and mix throughly. Sprinkle with additional grated cheese and the panko bread crumbs.

5. Bake for 25 minutes or until cheese is golden brown. Remove from oven and immediately top with gorgonzola, green onions and cilantro. Drizzle with more buffalo wing sauce.

Serves 4-6

Get Me Outta Here.

I say that sentence a lot.

I’m currently experiencing a really complicated time in life and wish I could tap my shoes together 3 times and be transported back to a time when things were more black and white.

Looks like that is not happening any time soon. So, as ever, I look to music to get me through.

“Get Me Outta Here” is from Anna Schulze’s album ‘Pickford Market’. I second that emotion.

Check out Anna Schulze on her Website where you can buy the music.

Cheers!
