Cobb Pasta Salad

This healthy dish includes all the elements of a Cobb salad including tomatoes, corn, avocado, chicken and cheese, but with the addition of whole wheat pasta and a delicious simple Russian dressing

1. Cook pasta until just firm to the bite, approximately 8 minutes. Drain well and rinse with cold water. Place on a large oval dish. Add arugula and mix.
2. In a small skillet sprayed with vegetable oil, add corn and tomatoes and sauté on a high heat just until both vegetables begins to brown, about three minutes.
