Happy hump day everyone!
On today’s lunch menu: quick and easy pasta salad. Like yesterday’s pizza, I added ingredients for this pasta salad based on what was in my fridge; it would be easy to modify to meet your needs and tastes. I must say that I’ve been
a bit obsessed with marinated artichoke hearts lately–I think I added almost the entire container’s worth into this lunch! I also picked up some Trader Joe’s Champagne Pear Gorgonzola salad dressing to add to the pasta salad. Pre-made salad dressings are easy and add a lot of flavor to such a simple meal.
Here’s the recipe:
Makes 3 servings
3 cups cooked whole wheat pasta
1 tablespoon Trader Joe’s Champagne Pear Gorgonzola salad dressing
1/2 cup marinated artichoke hearts
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/2 cup green beans, chopped
1/2 can black olives, pre-sliced
1 tablespoon crumbled feta
Combine all ingredients and toss in a small bowl.
Refrigerate for at least one hour, preferably over night.
