My daughter is in private school and has to bring her lunch every day. She is fed up with sandwiches and tonight she absolutely refused for me to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for her lunch tomorrow. I came on Allrecipe to see if there was anything else I could make and your recipe popped up. It just so happen that I made chicken tonight for dinner. I put everything in there and added some parmesan cheese. She tried it before she went to bed and asked me to put extra in there for her friends to taste. Thank you!! Read More

I've been making this dish for about 20 years. I like to cut my boneless skinless chicken breast into small cubes and brown in olive oil that I sauted couple of cloves of minced garlic in dash of salt/pepper. I used a large can of drained diced tomatoes that I marinate in a mix of olive oil red wine vinegar salt pepper garlic powder sugar and tarragon. Once chicken & noodles done mix all ingredients together taste adjust seasonings if need be and spoon in bowl and top with fresh grated ramano cheese. This recipe 3 add some spices and marinate those tomatoes 5!!! Read More

Standard pasta salad recipe with chicken. I would recommend using your own dressing always tastes better that way. I usually add additional items such as cheese and veggies. The bow tie pasta works well though as it catches lots of dressing. Read More

This was a great recipe. I loved it. And what's so great about it is you can modify it to your taste... add a green pepper or perhaps some mushrooms. I put in both and it turned out to be the best sald I've had ina while. Bravo to whomever thought this one up. Read More

Great base recipe. You can customize it with veggies and cheeses as you wish. Most times I prepare the pasta the night before stir the dressing in and then the next day add another bottle of dressing right before serving. Read More

This is very good and modifiable to suit your own tastes. I added some cucumber and parmesan cheese. I used a creamy italian dressing that I made using a recipe from this site but I'll use a vinegarette of some sort next time. Perfect to take for lunches. Read More
