You can do anything with macaroni.

On its own with olive oil and basil and oregano.

With a fresh seasonal veggie.

Sprinkle some fresh ground pepper and grated parmesan or romano on it.

Google "pasta primavera" for some nice veggie, springtime pasta dishes and use macaroni instead of whatever pasta the recipe calls for.

Have fun!

My family loves my "Italian Pasta Salad".

Pasta: Any kind, 1 box

Chicken: Anything leftover or boneless Chicken breast cooked in the microwave and cut into small chunks or small torn pieces.

Cucumber: Peeled and cut into small cubes.

Tomato: Whatever type you have on hand. Also cut into small cubes.

Black olives: Optional. Drained and sliced.

A small bottle of Italian Dressing: use enough to coat everything

Throw everything together in a bowl! Quick meal and great for picnics. Also, tastes great the next day.

Garlic powder, salt and pepper added to taste only if needed.
