Mom's Chicken Pasta SaladSubmitted by: LIMITEDGRACE
IntroductionThis is a lighter version of my mom's almost-famous pasta salad. It's a summer classic in our family and great as a side dish or a meal on it's own.

16 oz box of small pasta shells
10oz can of chicken breast
1 c of fresh or thawed peas (do NOT use canned peas)
1/4 c of chopped onion
1/8 c of chopped celery (or more if you really like celery)
6 hard boiled eggs - chopped
1 1/2 c of Miracle Whip light
salt & pepper
Drain chicken and separate chicken. It should look shredded.
In a large mixing bowl, combine half of the shells, all of the chicken, peas, onion, celery, egg and miracle whip. Stir until completely blended. Slowly add in the rest of the shells and continue to stir until completely blended. Salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Makes about 25 1/2-cup servings.

This was really good...I used fat free mayo instead just because I don't like Miracle Whip but it was good nonetheless. Could use some other seasoning but I'm not sure what? - 6/26/08

If you're using mayo, I would suggest seasoning to taste with maybe some paprika and maybe some Lawry's seasoned salt.
