  • 6 ounce pasta, shapes
  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 4 ounce mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup parsley, fresh
  • 1/8 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoon butter, unsalted


  • 4 cup lettuce, shredded
  • 10 jumbo black olives, canned
  • 1 medium bell pepper, red
  • 1 medium cucumber

Serve With

  • 2 cup grapes


  • Cook pasta to al dente according to package directions, then drain–reserving 1 cup cooking water–and return to pot to keep warm (stir in a bit of oil if desired to keep the noodles from sticking together).
  • Meanwhile, heat grill (inside or outside) to medium, and season chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Grill chicken 2-3 minutes per side until cooked through; remove from heat and cut into strips.
  • While chicken cooks, halve tomatoes, cube mozzarella, chop parsley, grate or shred Parmesan (if needed), slice olives (if desired), dice bell pepper, and slice cucumber.
  • Add the chicken, tomatoes, parsley, butter, and both cheeses to the pasta and toss to combine. If mixture is too dry/thick, add reserved water a little at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  • In a large bowl, toss together lettuce, olives, bell pepper, and cucumber. Top with your favorite dressing before serving.
  • Serve pasta with salad and grapes on the side.
