Make lunch or dinner super quick and easy with this Chicken Salad Pasta Bowl!
Have you ever thought, I don’t have time for dinner? Or maybe lunch? One way that I combat that issue is to make ahead chicken salad, of course, you can also purchase it at the store but I like to make it on Sunday and use it throughout the week for lunch or dinner. This past week, I was able to combine the chicken salad that I had on hand and make this delicious Chicken Salad Pasta Bowl.
Barilla Ready Pasta was key to making this pasta super quick and in just 60 seconds! Ready Pasta offers al dente pasta in just a minute, literally, only a minute. It doesn’t require any water or draining either, simply microwave it. It also has only 3 ingredients, olive oil, salt and the same Barilla pasta that you love without preservatives. I heated up the pasta, poured it into a bowl and added Raspberry Vinaigrette to it, then I topped it with prepared chicken salad, cheese, tomatoes, and a little bit of rosemary. It was so delicious and perfect for a quick lunch.
I know for most of us, lunchtime can be quite a rush. Sometimes I get so busy working that I have to make lunch quickly or I end up eating on the go. Then, if you have little ones at home, we all know you are lucky to even get to eat lunch between trying to get the little ones fed too. So, what better way to have a delicious lunch than with Ready Pasta? I thought this was pretty genius! The pasta has the same texture and taste as boiling pasta, but without the added time. It’s perfect too if you are taking lunch to work, you can heat it in the microwave and basically make your pasta salad right there at work.
I was able to pick this up at Target, plus you can use this Cartwheel to save on it too. This deal runs from 8/31-9/14/17 and you will get 10% off! There are several varieties; however, I went with the penne pasta. It can be found right in the pasta aisle with the other Barilla products.
