Creamy Bacon Buffalo Chicken Pasta



This dish is somewhat similar to my bacon buffalo mac and cheese but I think it's even better! Bacon, Buffalo Sauce, Chicken, and Shell Pasta. What's not to love?! And this is actually weight watchers friendly. A dish I can enjoy without feeling like I need to run 5 miles after eating it!
