This is a scumptious pasta great served warm or cold. I served this in my Deli as a daily special and ALWAYS sold out quick. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do. P.S. Make your own dressing for this, a bottle just can't compare.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First mix the dressing according to the packet directions using the buttermilk and mayonaise. Should you find this a little thick add more buttermilk to thin down a touch. Refrigerate.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the Olive oil, salt & pepper to taste. Add the chicken breast and toss to completely coat.
  3. Grill the chicken breast over medium heat until cooked through.
  4. Remove, cover with a tent of foil and allow to rest.
  5. Cook Penne according to package directions. Drain and put into a large mixing bowl. Do not do the standard rinse with cold water, we want the pasta to be warm. Add Broccoli immediately.
  6. Cube the chicken breast and add to the pasta.
  7. Next add cheddar cheese, we want this to melt slightly, don't be concerned that the past is still warm.
  8. Next add the dressing and toss to completely coat. Again let rest for 5 minutes or so to give the ingredient a moment to meld.
  9. I serve this with a fruit salad and a nice crusty bread to complete the meal.
