Preparation of Traditional Pasta Salad :
First, put pasta into boiled water, into which you’ve previously put some olive oil.
Strain pasta for ten minutes, when it is ready, so that it releases the surplus of water.
Cut both onion and carrot finely, while pasta is straining. Then, fry onion and carrot into preheated olive oil.
Chop chicken steaks into small cubes, and then add them to the fried onion and carrot, so that chicken itself becomes brown.
Cut mushrooms into thin slices and also add when the chicken steaks are already brown.

While frying, mushrooms themselves release some of their juice that helps chicken boils well, but you can also add some water it case it requires.
When mushroom juice boils down, add tomato sauce, and boil it additionally at low temperature for approximately ten minutes.
Cut fresh basil leaves finely (you can also use dried basil leaves), and add to the sauce along with some salt and black pepper.
Finally, serve pasta onto a dinner plate when it is ready, and then pour the finest chicken & mushrooms topping on it.
