Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad

If you like chicken wings and pasta you will LOVE this salad. I made this for lunch for some friends the other day and we all agreed, DELICIOUS! It is quick and easy and a great thing to have in the fridge for a scrumptious lunch.

1 package (13.25 oz.) multigrain pasta of your choice cooked according to package directions and rinsed in cold water (I used rotini)
2 carrots, shredded
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
2 shallots, finely chopped
1/3 c. Frank's red hot (hot sauce)
1 c. light ranch dressing
1 lb. cooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I roasted mine in the oven)
Blue cheese crumbles for garnish (if desired)
Combine pasta, carrots, celery, shallots, hot sauce, ranch dressing and chicken in a large bowl and toss to combine. Top with blue cheese crumbles, if desired.
