A Waldorf salad inspired my pasta dish. I use smoked turkey, apples, strawberries and orecchiette. Rotisserie chicken and other fruits would also taste great. —Sonya Labbe, West Hollywood, California

"This was a hit with some at a church potluck. I would add more turkey, strawberries and apple and some salt when I prepare it again. I substituted sour cream for yogurt, elbow and shell macaroni for the orecchiette or small tube pasta, and chicken for the turkey."
