    Daisydukex3's Note:

    This is an easy 4 ingredient dinner with plenty of leftovers (unless you have a huge family) Very frugal too- which is good in this economy! This makes a huge amount. We can feed a family of 5 plus have leftovers for lunch the next day! Great for a quick meal coming home from work.

      I was wanting to have this for my lunch on 4/20/12, so the salad was made on 4/19 to give the flavors time to meld. And since it was just for me,the recipe was made as follows, a 4 ounce chicken breast was diced into small bite sized pieces and browned in a bit of bacon "drippings".
      Then for the pasta, 2 ounces of ziti was used, along with 1/3 cup of cooked peas. And the only dressing I had was cucumber ranch, so that was used. I didn't expect this salad to have much flavor,but it really was very good.If anyone makes this, might I suggest making the day before to give the flavors time to develop. Made for Spring PAC 2012. Thanks for posting and," Keep Smiling :) "
