How This Mediterranean Pasta Salad Came To Be:

I find that I always have these top 10 ingredients in my fridge and pantry. These items are ones that we love, and I use them a lot in different variations anyway. So… Bonus!

My list includes: chicken stock, different types of beans, sundried tomatoes, capers, artichoke hearts, garlic, a variety of cheeses, pesto, citrus and fresh herbs. The possibilities are endless here!

Now, let’s fast forward to how this Mediterranean Chicken Pasta Salad came to be. One evening, as I stood in the pantry gazing over all of my options, it literally just came to me… I saw the sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and capers, and right then and there I knew I wanted to make a pasta salad with it.
