Chicken and Vegetable Pasta Salad

Rated as 4.63 out of 5 Stars

"Chicken, vegetables and pasta make up this filling salad which everyone seems to like, even people who don't like pasta salad. This is great for hot summer days when you just don't feel like turning on the oven. Note: the amounts here are estimates, as I rarely measure when I make this salad, so feel free to add a bit more or less of whatever you please."

My Mom and Dad really liked this, but I just thought it was OK. I kept thinking that it needed something, like maybe some buffalo mozzeralla cut into cubes, but both of my parents thought it wa...

This was excellent. My whole family loved it. I served it over sweet baby lettuce and added some balsamic vinagrette. I will make this over and over again.

Yum! I used whole wheat ziti instead of seashell pasta, added mushrooms, and used green olives because I was out of black. The sunflower seeds add a nice flavor/crunch. Thanks :)
