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?
