Personal Notes:
This recipe came about as an accident. I was making a chicken pasta salad recipe from Jenny Holman Cragun. I had cooked the chicken then at some point I inadvertently turned the page and made another completely different recipe. I added the two together and I really liked it so I kept it that way. I also like making just the noodles and dressing and eating them together. Yummy!
