My love for buffalo wing sauce has infiltrated its way into my love for pasta in today's featured recipe for two -- Garlic Buffalo Capellini.  This pasta dish delivers a spicy, garlic flavor that any buffalo wing fan will love.  However, a word of warning, this pasta does have a kick, so be prepared to take a walk on the hotter side. 

Garlic Buffalo Capellini
Total Time: 30 minutes
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

What you'll need
1/4 cup buttermilk 
2 tablespoons buffalo wing sauce (I prefer Franks Red Hot Wings Buffalo Sauce)
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 bell pepper (any color), diced
2 celery stalks, sliced
3 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/4 cup pasta water
6 ounces uncooked cappellini pasta (a little under 1/2 box)
1 tablespoon olive oil

1. Cook pasta according to package directions, reserving 1/4 cup pasta water for later.
2. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.  Add garlic, onion, celery and bell pepper.  Saute for 2 to 3 minutes. 
3. Stir in buttermilk and buffalo wing sauce.  Mix well and let simmer for 10 minutes. 
4. Add cooked pasta to the skillet with pasta water.  Toss into sauce.  Add tomatoes and let simmer for 2 minutes. 
5. Serve and enjoy!
