All right so tell me this pasta salad doesn't just sound good.......
Chicken Pasta Salad
4 cups cooked penne pasta
1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
1 pkg. (4 oz.) crumbled feta cheese
1 cup prepared Good Seasons Italian Salad Dressing Mix
1/3 cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves, cut into strips
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped sundried tomatoes (not oil packed)
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, grilled or broiled, cut into 1/4 inch slices
Toss all ingredients together then season as desired. Serve warm or chilled. Makes 7 1/2 cups.
All right, so maybe it isn't exactly a Minnesota winter comfort food, but I can eat salad year round. I especially love when I can make big batches of salads like this and eat off it for a week. Makes lunchtime go soooo much smoother for me.
