This easy pasta salad can make a fresh and healthy dinner, or a tasty Mediterranean side dish. This yummy Mediterranean dinner is full of peaches, pasta, chicken, and fresh herbs.

8 - ounces dried pasta, such as radiatore, bowties, campanelle, or penne
1 - pound chicken breast halves, cut into bite-size pieces
Salt and black pepper
5 - tablespoons olive oil
1 - medium red onion, cut into slivers
2 - large peaches, halved, pitted, and coarsely chopped, or 2 ripe pears, cored and coarsely chopped
1/2 - cup walnuts, toasted* and chopped
1/2 - cup packed fresh basil leaves, chopped
2 - tablespoons balsamic or red wine vinegar

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain; rinse with cold water. Drain again.

Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook 5 to 6 minutes or until browned and almost cooked through. Add onion to the skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes more or until chicken is done and onions have softened. Stir chicken, onions, peaches, walnuts, and basil into cooked pasta. Whisk together vinegar and the remaining 4 Tbsp. oil. Add to pasta; toss to coat. Serve immediately.

To toast nuts, spread nuts in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees oven 5 to 10 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice to toast evenly.
