Need an easy-to-make, comforting dinner? Make this light pasta dish! The ditalini used here is a small tube-shaped Italian corn pasta that’s naturally gluten free. Toss it with baked chicken, diced tomato and young peas, and you’ve got a warm, healthy and satisfying dish. But wait! Double the recipe and serve it cooled as a scrumptious, healthier take on classic picnic macaroni salad.
