RANDOM? Perhaps, but this is the way my brain works!
For this salad, you truly let your taste buds guide you. Typically I NEED a recipe to follow, at least loosely. But with a pasta salad, you simply need pasta, a sauce and then add-ons. It can be different every time and it'll always be awesome! When using Thrive ingredients, this healthy meal takes only the length of time needed to boil the pasta!
ANY WAY YOU GO PASTA SALAD is my new "go to" easy meal. Unfortunately for you, it's not an exact science... but it's going to end up delicious, that I can promise!
*If you want to use fresh ingredients, go for it! Simply wash, chop and still add during the last minute or two of boiling pasta water to soften the veggies.
My mom made the pasta salad featured above and made SO much that the next day she took it to a friends' house, warmed it up, added more Bechamel and feasted. That friend has since been enjoying the leftover leftovers as a cold salad for lunch...as have I! Perfect for my first week back at school. YUM!
