Chicken and Bacon Pasta Salad

Again a very simple salad, this time with pasta. Easy to make the night before and store in the fridge for a take to work lunch.

Chicken and Bacon Pasta Salad
(Serves 1)

60g dried pasta shapes
2 bacon medallions, chopped
handful green beans, cut into inch lengths
1 small chicken breast, shredded
1 tsp light mayonnaise
1 tsp Greek yoghurt
1 tsp Dijon mustard

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions adding the beans for the last 3 mins. Drain, run under the cold tap and then drain again well.

Meanwhile, heat a frying pan with a little oil and fry the bacon until it is cook through and golden.

Mix the mayonnaise, yoghurt and mustard together in a bowl. Add the pasta, chicken, bacon and beans and mix well so that everything is coasted in the mustard mixture. Serve or pack into a lunchbox and refrigerate over night.
