Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad


  • 1 (16 ounce) box mini penne pasta
  • 1 ½ pounds chopped cooked chicken
  • ½ cup diced green bell pepper
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ⅓ cup chopped red onion
  • ½ (8 ounce) bottle creamy Caesar salad dressing, or to taste


Step 1
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 7 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.

Step 2
Stir pasta, chicken, green bell pepper, eggs, Parmesan cheese, and red onion together in a bowl. Pour salad dressing over the top and toss to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled and flavors blend, at least 2 hours.
