Cashew Chicken Pasta

Do you love salads and pasta salads?

I do!

In fact, I’m quite obsessed and would usually rather eat one of these over a hamburger or hot dog any day. Like I said – obsession, I know. Whenever we go to parties, get togethers or baby showers, you’ll usually find at least one salad or pasta recipe, and we’re always trying them out so we can snag the recipe from whoever brought it. This Cashew Chicken pasta actually came from my sister-in-law’s mom. They served it at my brother’s wedding and it was a favorite. Everyone was asking for the recipe, so we had to jump in and ask too so we could make it at home as well. My mom has made it a few times since for events, and it’s always gone in no time so we know we’re not the only ones who love this pasta salad.

If you’re one to enjoy pasta salads as well, then I suggest giving this one a try. It’s hearty and has a delicious creamy dressing that you will love!

YUM! YUM!

Sometimes I’m hesitant to have fruits in a mostly savor-y salad, but these are so good in it… and the cashews give it the perfect crunchy taste! I really hope you like it. :)

    Why does this say “uncooked” pasta?
