Grilled Chicken and Pasta Salad

I spent some quality time with the family this past weekend. Hubby and the girl of course, but also a couple of aunties, an uncle, and a cousin.

As if I didn't already know how fortunate I am to have a fantastic family, I am constantly reminded.

We all have a very easy, no demands, relationship. We all have (for the most part) the same ideas of "fun" and enjoy doing those things together.

This time we all visited an place that we all spent so much of our lives at. We played tourist, ate too much, and spent a lot of time reminiscing about times past.

This cousin is just over a decade younger than I. He brought a friend with him.
It made my heart happy to hear him giving his friend "the tour" and bringing up memories specific to him.
I love that we all shared this together.

1 Lb skinless boneless chicken breasts (grilled/broiled and sliced)
2 Cups torn lettuce
2 Cups shell shaped pasta
2 Med tomatoes (chopped)
4 oz crumbled feta cheese
8 oz Italian salad dressing
Grated Parmesan cheese

1. Cook pasta per package directions
2. In large bowl, combine all ingredients except chicken and lettuce.
3. Cover, chill thoroughly
4. Just before serving, stir in lettuce
5. Arrange chicken on top
6. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese
