Rotini with Chicken, Asparagus, and Tomatoes

Reminiscent of pasta salad, this recipe calls for mixing rotini with tender, garden-fresh vegetables and a basil-flecked balsamic vinaigrette. This dish is delicious served warm or chilled, which makes it a great lunch-box option. Serve with a side of fresh bread from the bakery.
