Best Friends’ Greek Pasta

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 598


3 to 4 chicken breast fillets
Cajun seasoning to taste
1 (16-ounce) package penne pasta, cooked
1/4 cup basil pesto sauce
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1 (6-ounce) jar pitted Kalamata olives, drained
1 (8-ounce) package crumbled feta cheese
3/4 cup Italian salad dressing


Sprinkle chicken with seasoning. Grill until juices run clear; slice into bite-size pieces and set aside. While pasta is still hot, stir in pesto and garlic; mix well. Stir in remaining ingredients except salad dressing. Add dressing to coat; mix well.

Tip: Bright bandannas make colorful summertime napkins…find them in shades of blue, pink, yellow, red and green. Tie one around each set of flatware for lap-size napkins, then, after lunch, toss them in the washer…so easy!
