Today’s Menu: Italian Pasta & 3 Bean Salad w/ Whole Grain Chicken Breast StripsItalian 3 Bean Pasta Salad 005



My parents were out on a Church function so I spent the day catching up on all the housework, cleaning and the laundry! Then went to store real quick to pick a couple of items up and done for the day. Feels a lot more like August Weather today, HUMID! For dinner a new one, Italian Pasta & 3 Bean Salad w/ Whole Grain Chicken Breast Strips.




First time making the Italian Pasta & 3 Bean Salad. Came across several recipes for this so I took a few ideas from them and added my own touches to it and it came one delicious recipe! I used Ronzoni Garden Delight Trio Italiano Pasta, Mezzetta Pesto Sauce, Peppadews, 1 Can Read 3 Bean Pasta, 3 thinly sliced Mini Sweet Peppers, 7 Marinated Ciligine Balls (cut in half), fresh Shredded Cave Aged Gruyere, and 1 California Sour Dough Boule. To prepare I just cooked Pasta according to package directions (boiled 11 minutes); drained and rinsed under cold running water. Then in a bowl, combined Pesto with Pasta and folded until it was well coated. Then combined Pasta with Bean Salad, discarding liquid. Stirred in Peppadews, sliced Sweet Mini Peppers and Ciligine; and refrigerated. To serve, sprinkled Cheese (Gruyere), over top. If you like Pasta Salads you’ll love this version! This is the second time I’ve had the Peppadews and I am in love with these things, you have to try them! I served the Pasta in a hollowed out California Sour Dough Boule. Some other ingredients that you could add to this would be perhaps some toasted Walnuts, Pine Nuts or Sardines.



I also baked a couple of Perdue Whole Grain Chicken Breast Strips which I sliced up and added to my Pasta Salad. Another must try are these Perdue Whole Grain Chicken Breast Strips. I think possibly the best premade Chicken Strip I’ve ever had! They come breaded and just bake them for 12 minutes, flipping them over after 6 minutes. Great for salads, sandwiches, or just by their selves. Good item to have in the fridge or frozen. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl frozen Yogurt.
