Tips, Variations + Storing Info

This meal is meant to be simple, light and fresh and because it is so simple the ingredients you use do make a difference in how it turns out. You can replace the fresh tomatoes with canned, diced tomatoes (drained) but I suggest sticking with fresh tomatoes for the best results. It will always taste much better if you do. My favorite ones to use are grape tomatoes.


  • Switch the chicken out for shrimp or add chopped bacon on top.
  • This pasta salad can be served warm or cold, whichever you prefer. 
  • You can mix in some extra cheese while its warm to make it a little creamy. 
  • Drizzle a little balsamic glaze on top to add some sweetness. 
  • If you prefer a different cheese, Mozzarella or Romano cheese also work great in this dish.

STORE leftovers in an airtight container. It should last in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave in 30 second increments until warm or if you prefer it can be eaten cold. If the leftover pasta seems dry then just add a little bit of Olive oil to it. 

To make this dish ahead, cook and cube the chicken breasts ahead of time. You can follow this recipe here or use a chopped rotisserie chicken.

  1. “ANY CHANGES MADE: used salad vinegar instead of white, 2 chicken breasts cooked and cubed, 10 oz penne pasta”

    I’m confused by this? that’s what the recipe says is used. So what does “any changes made” mean?
