Dereks’ BBQ Chicken Pasta Bake

So, one of my best friends texted me tonight to tell me he was making a dish based on something he had had in Atlanta years ago.  Except he was putting a twist on it.

Now of course I told him to bring me some to taste, but he said I’d have to pay for the plane ticket.  You see, he moved away from Tampa to Richmond, VA a few years back.  I hate that he is so far away, but you know what?  I am so happy he did.  He found the love of his life and married him just last month.   He is were he belongs and who he belongs with.  Of course, they could move their butts back down here. LOL

So here’s Derek’s recipe for BBQ Chicken Pasta Bake.  I hope you enjoy.
