Chicken Cobb Pasta Salad

I was never a big lover of pasta salad. Every time I would have some I honestly would feel underwhelmed.

I prefer my noodles drenched in, and covered with some cheese personally.

I don’t know exactly what led me to throw this together. But one day I had the bright idea to make a pasta salad in the same way I made a Cobb salad. Because if I have to choose between lettuce and pasta, pasta wins. *shrugs*

And when I tell you it was a match made in heaven that ends in marriage. It is just that!
