It’s no surprise that I will do just about anything to avoid actually doing my work. I mean, people can’t be productive all day, right???
While perusing the internet, I inspired (and my stomach started grumbling) as soon as I saw the amazing pasta salad posted by the Fitnessista! I love pasta salad in the summer but don’t necessarily think about making it a whole lot when it comes to fall/winter. But, like typical Indiana – our temperatures have been in the 80s, which I think is hotter than it was all summer.
So, I made my own little delicious lunch! I didn’t follow the Fitnessista’s recipe, but made do with what I had! The best part about pasta salad is that it’s delicious right after it’s made, and it’s even better after it has sat for a day in the fridge!
Here’s what I added:
- a mix of noodles to finish off what was already opened…
- 2 roma tomatoes
- half of a GIANT green pepper
- a can of chickpeas (drained and delicious)
- 2 pieces of chicken breast (leftovers)
- 1 T of ranch dressing
- 3 T of italian dressing
- Bragg’s organic sprinkle seasoning (no measurement, spread til I was done)
- Fresh basil off my plant
So easy, delicious, and [relatively] healthy! The unhealthy part is that it’s so delicious I can’t stop eating it. Everything in moderation, right? Ha! 🙂
Have a great rest of your day and weekend! Try out some pasta salad and let me know how it goes!
