This was absolutely delicious! I substituted broccoli for the green peppers to humor my children and I think it made it even better!

i had a lot of left over havarti cheese after company left so i looked for a recipe w/ havarti. this was great! Really, the 'Best Ever Pasta Salad'. I didn't have bow tie pasta on hand so used small shells. I'm a vegetarian and it is very good w/o the chicken. I plan to make it again for the holidays because it is also a very good looking salad - I think I will double the amount of pimento to add more red color.
