1 (16 ounce) package
tri-color rotelle pasta

I really did not care for this. I broiled the chicken and cooked the bacon in a microwave bacon cooker, which made both pretty easy. I was trying to copy a chicken alfredo pasta at Whole Foods that is slightly creamy with pasta, alfredo sauce, chicken, tomates and lettuce. This was not quite it, from the dressing. The pasta salad had such a tart unpallatable after taste. I am assuming that the slight tart bite was from the olives and artichokes in this version. I wish I would have cut the vinegar back too. I am not sure it really even needed the vinegar. I am almost thinking there is a misprint in the recipe. It was too acidic for me, and missing that alfredo flavor I was hoping for, but hopefully someone will eat it. It was really expensive to make.
