Pesto Salad

I love finding recipes that my picky-ish daughter will eat.  Even better when I like them.  Even better when they are actually good for you!  I found this one here.

Pesto Salad with Chicken, Feta and Tomatoes
  • 1 pkg bow tie pasta
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 c basil pesto
  • 1/4 c Italian dressing
  • 1 c grilled chicken
  • 2 c spinach
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 feta cheese
  1. Cook the bowtie pasta according to package directions in a large pot of salted water.  Drain the pasta.  Drizzle with olive oil and stir around.
  2. Put the pasta in a large serving bowl and stir in the pesto and Italian dressing.  Add the spinach, cherry tomatoes and feta cheese.  Toss to combine.  Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Cover the pasta and refrigerate.  If the pasta seems dry before serving, you can stir in another tablespoon of olive oil.
