I used whole wheat penne. We enjoyed this with baked chicken. Fish would be nice too. I'd like to toss in thinly sliced rotisserie chicken breast next time.
I actually made this an entree. I also changed the recipe to make it vegan and added more vegetables and roasted them. To make this recipe vegan I used veganase in place of mayo, omitted the cheese, and used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. I roasted asparagus, yellow zucchini, sweet corn from the cob, red bell pepper, and red onion. I cooked and shredded some organic chicken for my boyfriend, so he could add it to this pasta salad. Quick, easy and delicious!
very good side salad for fish. Used fresh asparagus from the farmers market.
Loved it! And what made it even more special was that the Chef who created this dish made it for me herself. I didn't have to prepare it. How special is that? She made a ton of it for me and on day 2 I have added some white albacore canned tuna. Complete meal. Thank you SC!
This was a wonderful addition to my grilled salmon dinner. I prepared the pasta and asparagus early in the day, chilled, then tossed at serving time. Wonderful way to keep the kitchen cool on a 113Â° day! Just had to add grilled French bread for a perfect light summer meal. Dinner guests immediately wanted your recipe - one of whom is a cookbook author! I tossed in some ham for lunch the next day; would be good with chicken, too. Thank you for a dish I will enjoy often!
Absolutely delicious! The dressing had the perfect balance of flavors. I also liked that there was plenty of asparagus to go around. The next day, I added some sliced steak and packed it up for my lunch. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing this.
If you love asparagus, and you love pasta, you need to try this. I made this for thanksgiving and got rave reviews for being deliciously different. I thought it was fabulous! It was easy to prepare ahead as I just made the sauce in a separate container and mixed it in with the pasta the day of. It has a light creamy lemony peppery flavor that is addicting! I couldn't stop eating it and it's even better the next day but it does make a lot. Thanks so much for posting! We loved it!
