Pasta Salad

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:
