Ingredients: (I don't know the technical names for the pasta types, so enjoy my made up pasta names)
- Tube noodle pasta
- Tortellini pasta
- Tri-colored spiral pasta (white, green, and orange- it adds color)
- Chicken, cubed
- Zesty Italian Kraft dressing
- Green Onions
- Crushed red peppers (like the ones at Pizza Hut for your pizza)
- Parmesan Cheese
I have never really measured the exact ingredient amounts when making this. It is pretty easy to wing it. I promise you can't really mess it up. If you're making this for a large group, I would say use a whole bag or box of each kind of pasta. If it is for a small family meal, use a cup or two of each pasta type. Cook all the pasta, drain, rinse, and lay out on paper towel to cool and dry. If there is water on the pasta, the oils in the dressing won't stick to it. It's okay if the pasta is slightly sticky, because it will stick to the dressing better.
While the pasta is drying, cook the chicken, cut into cubes, and place in the fridge to cool. Chop green onions, broccoli, and olives.
When everything is cooked, cooled, and chopped, mix it all into a giant bowl. Add a whole bottle of Zesty Italian dressing, crushed red peppers, and parmesan cheese. Sometimes the pasta soaks up the zesty-ness, so you can always add another bottle if you like more of a zing.
