Mediterranean Chicken Pasta Salad

[site_reviews_summary] Reviews

Marinade, medium heat, and mix it up good! That’s the basics to this easy-to-make warm pasta dish you’ll be coming back to again and again.

The soft crunch of peppers, the salty combo of olives and feta—all combined with al dente penne and chicken—then topped with our Family Recipe Italian Dressing.
