Mahalo! Hawaiian Pasta Salad – It’s Grindz!

hawaiianpasta1
A Spin Off from Our Hawaiian Sliders: Recipe Here

2c Uncooked Noodles of choice (I would’ve used Bow Tie, only had Mostaccioli)

1c uncooked Chicken Breasts, cubed largish
1c Ham Steak, diced (Mine was uncooked)
1/2c Lawry’s Hawaiian Marinade
1/2T Coconut Oil

1/2 Red Pepper
1/2 Green Pepper
1/2 Onion

Sauce:
1/2c Mayo
1/2c canned Crushed Pineapple (In juice), slight drain
1/8-1/4tsp Sea Salt
1/4tsp Paprika
1/4tsp Lemon Juice (Fridge Concentrate Kind)

Topping: Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Marinade Chicken and Ham for about 5 hours. Heat skillet with Coconut Oil. Add in marinaded Chicken and Ham. Cook til done. Set aside. Allow to cool.
Mix Sauce ingredients. Set in fridge, til use.
Boil Noodles (Noodle tip: Add in a LIL Oil and a pinch of salt while boiling. Helps noodles sticking.). I drain and rinse in cold water. DRAIN WELL!!!
Chop up Red Pepper, Green Pepper, and Onion.
Combine all together. Serve.
(When premaking for party… Keep in mind, noodles and chicken mix may eat up sauce. So, I always make a lil saucier. Add sauce no longer than 30 minutes prior to serving. Altering sauce amount (Like doubling) is up to your tastes.)

NOTES: I’m sure you can make a “Half the Flavor” pasta with skipping marinade… But, it’s SO TASTY with! And Cheap!
