    Chef shapeweaver �'s Note:

    I found the original recipe in the July/August 2004 issue of "TOH" Quick Cooking magazine. It was sent in by Linda sweet of Newark, Delaware. if you want to make this even quicker, just use leftover mixed veggies. This recipe called for ziti, but I changed it to garden rotini (tri colored pasta). I left off the walnuts, but you can add them if you like. This is really a good way to use up that last bit of leftover chicken. Posted on October 30th, 2005.
