  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook the rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain and cool.
  2. Mix pasta, chicken, celery, roasted red pepper, and 1 tablespoon of reserved roasted red pepper juice in a salad bowl. Stir mayonnaise, hot sauce, Gorgonzola cheese, and Worcestershire sauce together in a separate bowl until thoroughly combined. Pour dressing over pasta mixture and toss lightly to coat. Chill before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Cooking time is based on how long it takes to cook the pasta and chicken for this dish. Times will vary for different pastas. Chicken and pasta should be cooled before mixing in the other ingredients. Depending on how wet you like your salad, you may want to adjust the amount of mayonnaise and hot sauce to taste. Double this recipe if you are serving a crowd. This will go fast and leave people wanting for more.
