Southwest Chicken Penne Pasta
Serves 8
While walking the aisles of a professional food show, I happened to come upon a booth with a number of pasta salads to sample. I liked the flavor profile of a pasta salad that ultimately became our Southwest Chicken Penne Pasta Salad. Our "scratch" recipe turned out MUCH better than the one we all tasted that day and it has been a popular item here at Nino's ever since. And, by the way, our Rotisserie Chicken is excellent in this recipe!
