1 box (7.75 oz) Betty Crocker® Suddenly Salad Classic pasta salad mix
1/2 cup refrigerated Alfredo sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded deli rotisserie chicken (without skin)
1 cup halved grape or cherry tomatoes
1 cup halved sliced cucumber
2 tablespoons sliced fresh basil leaves
1. In 3-quart saucepan, cook pasta as directed on box. Drain; rinse with cold water to cool.
2. In small bowl mix seasoning mix from packet and Alfredo sauce. Place cooked pasta, chicken, tomatoes, cucumber and basil in serving bowl. Add Alfredo mixture; toss to evenly coat. Sprinkle with topping from packet and basil sprig, if desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving time.
This recipe allows you to use all the short cuts you need in the summer heat. It wouldn't take much to do this from scratch--and the Alfredo sauce with the fresh basil makes it a yummy meal. Enjoy!
