I have a treat for you today! I mentioned in my post a few days ago about a great pasta salad recipe.
My husband has been craving pasta salad lately, so I decided it was time to finally give this a shot!
He loves a pasta salad at our local grocery store, so I decided I would try to mimic it a bit. The problem is he didn’t want cheese in it, and I was afraid how it would turn out without it.
I went to the store and picked up some “go to pasta salad” recipe ingredients. I honestly really didn’t know what I was doing but I figured it is hard to mess up pasta salad so even if it wasn’t perfect it would be a step up from the pasta with italian dressing I used to make. Yes I used to to call that “pasta salad”.
I purchased a few necessary ingredients I felt like needed to be in there:
-Red Wine Vinegar
The prep in itself is very simple.
Take all the “dressing” ingredients, put into a food processor, and blend.
The only change I would make is to increase the amount of sun-dried tomatoes I used. I only used probably 1/4 of a cup. I would up this to maybe 1/2 cup just to add a bit more flavor.
You can throw in different vegetables if you or your family likes something particular. I am not an olive fan but my husband loves them so I put them in. They are very easy to pick around.
The final product turned out delicious. You will have to excuse the picture – I forgot to take it after it was cooked and instead had to take it a day or so later.
Do you enjoy pasta salad?
