Greek Pasta Salad

This is a Taste of Home recipe.  Looks like it came in the February/March 2008 magazine.  This didn’t look like it made a lot (the recipe said 4 servings) so I increased the amount of all ingredients to accommodate my pasta salad loving family.

1 1/2 cups uncooked penne pasta (I used a 17.2 oz bag of elicoidali pasta, it was the closest I had to penne)

1/2 cup cubed cooked turkey or chicken (I used a can of Costco chicken)

1 (3.8 oz) can sliced ripe olives, drained (no one except Bob is a big fan here so I left these out)

1/4 cup chopped green pepper (I used 1 whole green bell pepper)

1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper (I used 1 whole red bell pepper)

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (I used a 6 oz container of feta)

1/3 cup Caesar salad dressing (I just poured it on until it looked good)

Cook pasta according to package directions then drain and rinse with cold water.  In a large bowl, combine pasta, chicken, olives, peppers and feta.  Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat.  Cover and refrigerate until serving.
