“Mustgo” Pasta Salad

As I was creating my first post I was also endeavoring to create a tasty and reasonably nutritious dinner.  Using a technique others have used to make “mustgo” soup (everything in the fridge must go) I created “mustgo” pasta salad:


  • 12 oz box Tricolor Rotini
  • 12 Grape tomatoes (halved)
  • 3 String Cheese (diced)
  • 1 avocado (diced)
  • 1/2 cup Italian Dressing

Directions: Cook rotini according to package directions (I added a dollop of Wildtree grapeseed oil to the water). Drain. Rinse. Cool.  While preparing pasta, combine the tomatoes, cheese and avocado in a large bowl.  Fold the cooled rotini into these ingredients.  Toss with Italian dressing.  Salt and Pepper to taste.  Serves 4-6.

I enjoyed it with a glass of Pinot Grigiot.  What’s your favorite spur of the moment concoction?


About Karen Nicholson

“Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.” ~ John Milton Writing about these moments of awe has been a driving force of my life for, well, as long as I can remember. Coupled with a devotion to sunrises and sunsets that defies explanation, a combination of the two seemed like the right thing to do. I welcome you to my world. May it be a blessing to yours.
