Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Bring quinoa and water to boil in medium saucepan; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 15 min. or until tender.
Spoon quinoa into large bowl. Add all remaining ingredients except 1 cup shredded cheese; mix lightly. Spoon into 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with remaining shredded cheese. (Or if preparing ahead of time, spoon into freezer-proof 13x9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Wrap with foil. Freeze up to 3 months.)
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until heated through. (Or if baking frozen casserole, unwrap casserole; cover with additional foil. Bake 1 hour 20 min. or until heated through, uncovering after 1 hour. Or thaw frozen casserole in refrigerator overnight. Bake, uncovered, 35 to 40 min. or until heated through.)
Sprinkle with 2 chopped green onions, then drizzle with additional 2 Tbsp. Buffalo wing sauce before serving.
For added color and texture, serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
