  • 1 (16 ounce) box mini penne pasta

  • 1 ½ pounds chopped cooked chicken

  • 2 large hard-boiled eggs, chopped

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 7 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
