Asian Pasta Salad

Asian Pasta Salad via. Birdie Shoots

When it comes to asian cuisine, I normally like to leave the cooking to the pros. I just never seem to  be able to recreate the flavor combinations I find in my favorite restaurants or dishes. However, this Asian chicken pasta is the clear exception to the rule. With an array of fresh and flavorful ingredients (most of which can be found in your local store) come together in perfect savory unison. I first tried this recipe several year ago from a very close like-family friend. I was instantly hooked, and my mom being the lovely lady that she is adopted the dish into our family cookbook. I'm telling you, this is a serious crowd-pleaser, perfect for pop-lucks, as a side dish, or even as the main meal. Want to know what makes this so delicious? Cruise below to check-out the recipe!
