Rotisserie Chicken Pasta Salad

The flavor and juiciness of rotisserie chicken makes this pasta salad a hit with me. You can serve this dish immediately or refrigerate to allow the flavors to blend more and serve cold. Either way it's yummy :-)

Fantastic! If you omit the mozzarella and later replace it with parmesan (fresh grated of course) after the dish has cooled its wonderful cold as a picnic dish. You rock Lila!
