Pesto-Ranch Chicken Salad

This is a throw-together kind of salad, so the amounts are only approximate and can vary.

1 lb. farfalle (bowties) pasta, cooked and rinsed
1/2 c. fresh or store-bought pesto
1/2 16 oz. bottle light ranch dressing
2 c. cooked, shredded chicken (can use rotisserie)
1 c. shredded parmesan
1/2 c. pine nuts (even better if you toast them first)
1 1/2-2 c. frozen peas
1/2-1 c. craisins (optional)

Combine the dressing and the pesto in medium bowl. Place all ingredients in very large bowl and stir to combine. Makes a great meal on a bed of lettuce.
