Who doesn't love an all-in-one comfort food dish? Served warm or cold, this pasta is excellent year-round and is a terrific way to use up leftover cooked chicken. For a brighter hit of colour, substitute frozen mixed chopped vegetables for the peas. Garnish with a few extra fresh mint leaves for a pretty touch.
