Chicken salad pasta cups

Chicken Salad Pasta Cups

I’m not sharing a recipe with you today ~ just a fun serving idea.  Why not use cooked jumbo pasta shells as little cups to hold chicken or tuna salad?  They’re easy to serve and they make a clever finger food, don’t you think?

    didn’t catch that those were jumbo pasta shells at first … and was admiring your handiwork at stuffing standard pasta. was about to ask if you used dental surgical equipment to make them!

    Awesome idea, I think my kids would eat pretty much anything when served in a pasta shell!

    Since I’ve been with you….. which is forever…. I have loved everything you have made and hope S + C have loved it all too. :) Now onto the pasta. It looks wonderful! I didn’t know it was jumbo pasta either, but I’m glad you didn’t have to fill every individual small pasta. xoxo

    Why didn’t I think of this? Oh well, I guess that’s why we have you! :)

    I think I would probably do about four before I get fed up and just start eating them by the handful instead!

    Great idea – would be good for party food.

    Hey while I am here I just thought I should tell you that on your blogger profile you should set up your web address to point to your blog, at the moment you only have your 2 old blogger blogs on your profile.

    what a creative concept!

    Brilliant idea, the pasta shells are definitely a good alternative to endive leaves or even crackers.

    Alicia ~ I’ll look into it. Truthfully, I didn’t even know I still had a blogger profile! I toyed with doing this blog through that server but liked wordpress better. Thanks for the heads-up. :)

    Now this is a great idea! And the possibilities are endless! Thanks for the tip Michelle and thanks for the well wishes for my market plans this Spring. Do you live close enough to come? Now that would be cool!

    This dish looks so neat. Fantastic idea!

    An excellent idea and it opens up the possibilities for all kinds of things…I am looking forward to trying it out with a crab dip or seafood salad.

  24. January 14, 2011 1:33 pm

    This is really a great idea! I bet the pasta shell is a fun alternative to bread or lettuce cups!

    Love this serving idea. It’s going to be so perfect for summer picnics too.
