|boil noodles till tender, put in fridge to cool. this can be done up to 12 hours in advance. |
when wanting to serve add. All veggies are optional, all cut to size of liking i cube/dice mine. if you want chicken in it cut them into chunks and cook using seasoning salt garlic and pepper. also chicken needs to go in fridge to cool.
add all diced veggies to cold noodles toss add chicken toss again. instead of adding dressing to the whole bowl pour your desired amount on your serving, pasta last longer that way and some like the taste strong others do not this pleases everyone.
add some Parmesan on top for added flavor.
all amounts are standard you can add more or not as much for your liking
