Cook pasta according to the package’s instructions, drain and set aside.
As the pasta cooks, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the hot sauce, stirring occasionally, then add the cream cheese. Use a wooden spoon to break up the cream cheese a bit, then whisk the mixture together until creamy, slowly adding in the milk as you go.
Sprinkle in half of the packet of Ranch seasoning, stirring it in until fully combined. Toss the sauce with pasta, and top with crumbled blue cheese and diced jalapeños (optional). Serve.
