Easy Pasta Salad

This is one of those dishes that you can always count on for a dish to pass occasion.  More times than not I had the ingredients on hand to make this pasta salad or one very close to it.  You can always substitute or add to these ingredients.  Enjoy!

8 ounce Fusilli (corkscrew) pasta
3/4 cup Italian dressing (regular, spicy, or creamy)
1/4 cup green bell pepper, cut into thin bite size strips
1/4 cup red bell pepper, cut into thin bite size strips
1/2 cup sweet onion, cut into thin bite size strips
6 ounces grilled boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into thin bite size pieces
1/2 cup fresh mozzarella cheese, diced
1/2 cup fresh cheddar cheese, diced
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

Prepare the pasta according to the direction on the package, drain well, and then immediately dump into a large bowl.
While pasta is still warm, pour in the Italian dressing and stir to coat well.
Add all the remaining ingredients, toss well, then cover bowl loosely and set in refrigerator to chill.
Serve chilled or set it out for a few minutes to take off the chill and serve a bit cooler than room temperature. Toss again before serving.
