Pasta Chicken Salad

This was one of my favorite things to eat growing up. It's a great summer meal!

Pasta Chicken Salad
1 cup shell macaroni, uncooked
2 cups chicken, cooked and diced
1 cup green grapes
1 cup red apples, diced
1 cup celery, diced
1 cup canned pineapple chunks
3/4-1 cup mayo
1 tsp poultry seasoning
Sliced almonds, optional

Cook macaroni shells according to package directions and drain. Run cold water over to cool; drain. In large bowl combine pasta, chicken, grapes, apples, celery, and pineapple. In a small bowl stir together mayo and poultry seasoning. Add mayo mixture to ingredients in large bowl and stir until everything is evenly coated. Refrigerate until chilled.
Serve on a crisp lettuce leaf or melon ring topped with sliced almonds. Serves 8

I made this one with green apples and red grapes.
