Pasta Salad

Time Needed: 20 minutes
Level of difficulty: easy
Materials needed: 1 box pasta (your choice of noodle shape), 3 shredded cooked chicken breasts, 1/2 can corn, 1/2 can black beans, 1/2 large can sliced olives, 1 cup steamed green beans, 1 cup steamed carrots, 1 cup steamed pea pods, 1 diced tomato, 1/4 c olive oil, 1 t mustard, 2 T lemon juice, 1 t Italian seasoning (or enough basil, oregano, parsley and the like to equal 1 t), salt and pepper to taste
Directions: Cook pasta according to directions. Meanwhile, drain canned veggies and steam raw veggies. (Don't steam the tomato - ew.) In a jar, mix oil, mustard, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, and shake until mixed. Pour all your ingredients into a bowl, including the dressing, mix together, and serve. Because this is full of veggies and meat, this can be your entire meal if you choose, or it can be a hearty side dish.
