I adapted this recipe from the back of a Ronzoni Healthy Harvest pasta box. It's great as a main course or a side dish and is best served cold straight from the refrigerator. This recipe can be suited to your taste, so add as much or little of anything as you like.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped finely or minced
  • 2 ounces yellow pepper, chopped coarsely (2 ounces is about half a pepper)
  • 1 1/2 ounces pre-sliced baby portobello mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3 ounces precooked chicken cubes, chopped
  • 4-5 ounces whole wheat penne pasta, uncooked
  • 2-3 tablespoons tomato and herb based salad dressing


  • Saute garlic, pepper and mushrooms in olive oil until tender. Remove from heat and stir in chicken and parsley.
  • Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta.
  • Toss chicken mixture with pasta and stir in salad dressing.
  • Refrigerate until cold; serve straight from refrigerator.
