Summertime Pasta Salad




This is a favorite of mine. Pam Spears made it for me when I had Boy2. I have been making it ever since and loving it!

2 Chicken breasts; boiled and cubed
2 green bell peppers
1 red pepper
1 yellow or orange pepper
carrots
1 Package of bow tie pasta; cooked and drained
Parmesan cheese-grated
1 bottle of ZESTY Italian dressing-must be ZESTY!
Salt and pepper to taste
Pam also adds black olives-but we do not like olives at our house

Cut the peppers and carrots into bite size pieces. Once the chicken and pasta are cooked, add everything together in a big serving dish or bowl. Don't forget the cheese...it makes the dish so much more flavorful. I just about use the entire bottle of dressing so that it will not get dry.

Serve with warm french bread and you have a light, refreshing summertime dinner. It is even better the next day.

I absolutely love this meal! Thanks for the reminder.

Also, do you put cheddar in it? Somewhere along the lines I started putting chucks of cheddar. Anyway, it's a good addition.
