Bowtie Chicken Pasta Salad

I wanted to add this to the file because this is one of my all time favorite pasta salads. I have also used a bottle of coleslaw dressing if you dont want to use the mayo dressing. It is SO good! I used whole wheat pasta and canned chicken from my food storage for this, turned out great.


1 1/2 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
1 1/2 cups rotini pasta
1 1/2 cups diced cooked chicken
1 (20 oz can) pineapple, drained
1 cup red grapes, sliced in half
2 ribs of celery, diced
3 green onions, diced
1 cup craisins
1 cup cashews -or almonds, pecans etc.
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup mayonnaise

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and cool pasta. To large bowl, add pasta, chicken, pineapple, grapes, celery, onion, and craisins. In a separate bowl mix sugar and mayo. Pour over pasta mixture and toss. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. Mix in cashews
