Feta Pasta Salad

Tonight I have a yummy and simple recipe for pasta salad! I'm generally not the biggest fan of pasta salad, but this one is in a league of its own. Roasted bell peppers, chicken, pasta, and broccoli are tied together with fresh and creamy feta to make an absolutely scrumptious quick and easy meal. Make sure you buy the kind of feta that is almost spreadable for the best results. Pre-crumbled, dry feta would not taste as good, nor would it be as easily incorporated into the pasta, chicken, and veggies. Enjoy!

Pasta Salad with Chicken, Broccoli, and Feta (1)

Pasta Salad with Chicken, Broccoli, and Feta
1 large chicken breast, cooked and shredded
½ cup sliced roasted red peppers
3 ounces dry penne pasta
4 cups broccoli florets
4 ounces creamy feta cheese (not the dry, crumbled kind)
Romaine lettuce

Bring a small pot of water to a boil, and cook the pasta according to the instructions on the box. Drain and rinse with cold water. Put some more water in the pot, bring it back to a boil, and cook the broccoli for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, mix together the feta cheese, chicken, roasted red peppers, and pasta in a bowl. Stir in the broccoli and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Serve on a bed of lettuce.
