My assistant, Jenni, shared this awesome pasta salad recipe with me. It is delish and so easy to make. In this ungodly heat wave we are experiencing in Michigan, no one wants to spend time in a hot kitchen. This one dish meal is perfect for hot weather and has minimal prep time.
- 1-2 packets of pesto sauce (I use the jar pesto sauce from Costco)
- 2-3 boneless chicken breasts, chopped and cooked
- 1 box of Rotini noodles
- 1 bag steamable frozen vegetables
Prepare the pesto sauce and the noodles as directed on the package. Chop chicken breasts into bite size pieces and pan sear on stove top.
Cook the vegetables as directed. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and serve. This dish can be served hot or cold. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the salad when reheating.
