Chicken Pasta Salad Recipe

There was finally a day last week where it was still light enough when I made dinner for me to photograph it! I imagine after the time change this upcoming Sunday there will be more and more of these as we enter Spring. This is a simple and quick chicken pasta dish which only took about 20 minutes from prep to eating time. My kind of dinner! As I type this I am rocking a baby to sleep while wearing him in the Moby so I can actually think about tonight's dinner. I can appreciate an easy but yummy meal and this was both!
