Tomato Pesto Macaroni Salad

I just threw some ingredients together one night to make this pasta salad. It turned out yummy and all the girls really liked it. (My kids are great eaters though and they love tomatoes though- I know some people are not tomato people)

2 cups small shell pasta
3 TBSP Sun Dried Tomato Pesto
1 small can Sliced Black Olives
2 tomatoes, diced
1/2 cucumber, diced
2 green onions, diced
2 cups cooked chicken, cubed (I used a roast chicken from Sam's Club and cut it up to use for 2 different dishes)
1 cup light Mayo
Salt, pepper to taste

Cook the pasta until done, drain. Add pesto, olives, tomatoes, cucumber, green onions, and chicken. Mix thoroughly. Add Mayo (you may want more- according to how creamy you like it) and salt and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly and refrigerate for 1 hour.
