We took the traditional Italian caprese salad and tossed it in with chicken and rotini, turning it into a tasty meal the whole family will enjoy!

What You'll Need:
  • 8 ounces rotini
  • 1 1/2 cup diced cooked chicken
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cubed (about ½¾ cup) (see note)
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan and roasted garlic dressing
  • 1/2 cup torn fresh basil
What To Do:
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and place pasta in a large bowl.

  2. Add chicken and remaining ingredients to warm pasta, and toss well. Serve immediately.

Notes

Caprese refers to a simple Italian salad containing basil, fresh mozzarella cheese, and tomato. Interestingly, it reproduces the colors of the Italian flag-green, white, and red. Fresh mozzarella is more delicately flavored, moist, and softer than regular mozzarella cheese. Look for it in the deli section of most supermarkets.
