 Toss all the above with the olive oil and pour onto a baking sheet and roast in a 375 f oven till tender but not falling apart and brown on the edges. Remove to a large bowl with the pasta

Toss in

1/3 cup Toasted Pecans
1/3 cup Craisins
1 cup Large diced Boars Head Golden Classic Deli Chicken, saute it in a pan to take off the coldness

Drizzle it all with more Extra Virgin olive oil. It doesnt need any other dressing, its packed with so much flavor as it is..if you want extra sweetness add some maple syrup too
