1 c Cheddar cheese
1 ½ c Mozzarella cheese
¾ c Ranch
2 c Chicken boiled and chopped
2 c Penne pasta
2-3 pieces of Chives
8 ounces Cream cheese
¼ c Hot sauce
Put a large pot with water on the stove and turn the heat to high. Allow the water to boil.
Add the pasta and a bit of salt, then cook until firm to bite. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.
Drizzle olive oil over the pasta, then toss until well coated.
Add hot sauce, cream cheese, and ranch into a large mixing bowl. Stir until well blended and creamy.
Add the pasta, chopped chicken, and 1/2 cup of grated mozzarella cheese. Stir everything until well combined.
Prepare the oven and preheat to 190 degrees C or 375 degrees F.
Brush a baking dish with butter.
Transfer the pasta to the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly.
Sprinkle the rest of the grated mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheese over the pasta.
Place the baking dish inside the preheated oven and bake everything for about 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted completely and turns golden brown.
Remove from the oven, then sprinkle freshly chopped chives on top to garnish.
Serve and enjoy!
