Ingredients for Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Buffalo Chicken Pasta Casserole

This recipe doesn’t require too many ingredients but there are a few since you will be making your own dairy-free sauce! Here’s what you need:

  • Gluten-Free Pasta- use whichever brand is your favorite!
  • Vegan Cream Cheese- I am partial to Trader Joe’s brand, however any vegan cream cheese will work.
  • Non-Dairy Milk- almond, soy, etc.
  • Buffalo Wing Sauce- mild or spicy!
  • Shredded Chicken- I like to cook chicken ahead of time in the crock pot and shred it up but any leftover chicken or a grocery store rotisserie chicken is perfect for this recipe!
  • Shredded Vegan Mozzarella Cheese

If you are not gluten-free, you can substitute regular pasta in this recipe. Don’t need to worry about dairy-free? Go ahead and use regular milk, cream cheese and cheese for this recipe!

Can this casserole be made ahead of time?

Yes! Go ahead and make it all the way through including baking it in the oven. Then, heat individual servings when ready to eat. This casserole is delicious leftover and does not dry out.

I’m vegan, can I leave out the chicken?

Definitely! Or even swap it out for crumbled tofu or shredded jackfruit!
