Cook pasta until al dente in generously salted water according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
Heat one tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat in a large nonstick skillet. Saute onions for 5 minutes or until softened and slightly golden. Add garlic and saute 30 seconds.
Turn heat down to medium and stir in creamed corn, cream cheese, 1/2 cup milk, 2-5 tablespoons Buffalo hot sauce (see note) and spices. Stir until cream cheese is melted, then stir in cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese until melted.
Add chicken, bacon and pasta and stir until evenly coated, adding additional milk if needed to reach desired consistency. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
This great recipe is outstanding and so easy to make. I was not a fan of cheddar cheese, but decided to use it as the recipe indicated. It was delicious and I am glad that I did not alter the recipe. Will make this again.
