Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

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.
