Deli Style Pasta Salad
8 ounces rotini pasta (Note #1)
Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and cool. Cook vegetables also according to package directions. Drain and cool.
Cook the chicken breast; either sauté it or simmer in a little chicken broth. Cool and cube it.
In a large bowl, combine pasta, vegetables, olives, onion and chicken. (Note #3) Add dressing and toss. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over top.
Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
Note #1: Spiral or radiadore pasta works well also. I like tricolor pasta.
Note #2: Please don't use grated parmesan; only shredded will give the flavor and texture you want.
Note #3: Two or three very thinly sliced red radishes are good in this salad, too.
