So if you watched the latest video on my youtube channel; cherrypielady7 cooking channel you saw that Jeff (my hubby) and I did 2 videos about making pasta salads for easy meals on hot summer nights. I wanted to give you a few more ideas for making pasta salads because they can be a great time saver as well.
* Add vegetables and boiled shrimp with a ranch dressing
* Add boiled egg to our tuna salad recipe and you have even more protein
* Add greens such as kale, arugula, or chard to the salad right before serving or serve a well dressed
salad over a bed of mixed greens or romaine.
*Add chunks of salami, capicola, or mozzarella cheese to the antipasta one we made.
The thing that I like most about having cold pasta in the fridge is that you can pull it out and make a wide variety of things in a pinch. You can even heat it up and serve it with sauce from your pantry if you had to. Make up a batch in the cool of the morning and once its cool bag it up in a ziplock bag it will keep in the fridge for several days.
Be creative and have fun with it. Until next time….
