Directions

1 16-ounce package Rotini pasta


4-5 quarts water


Dressing


1 1/4 cups V-8 juice


1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil


1 tablespoon red wine vinegar


1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder


3/4 teaspoon paprika


1/2 teaspoon salt


1/4 teaspoon black pepper


1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


1/2 cup cooked yellow corn kernels


1/3 cup chopped cilantro


1/4 cup chopped green onion


2 tablespoons diced red bell pepper


2 tablespoons diced green bell pepper


1 chicken breast fillet, cooked and diced


1. Prepare the pasta by bringing 4-5 quarts of water to a rolling boil in a large saucepan. Add pasta to the pan, and when water begins to boil again, cook for 8-11 minutes. Pasta should be el dente, or mostly tender but with a slight toughness in the middle.


2. Whisk all of the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover and chill the dressing until you're ready to use it.


3. When pasta is done, pour it into a large bowl. Add the dressing, then toss.


4. Add the remaining ingredients to the pasta, and toss until combined. Cover and chill for several hours before serving.


Serves 8.
