VEGGIE PASTA SALAD
I will send left overs home with people we have over or drop extras off at a friend’s place because if there is pasta salad in my fridge.
I watch my calories and macros so I do track everything, but when there’s a big bowl of this gluten free veggie pasta salad in my fridge, all bets are off. I have no self-control.
This recipe is so simple and the best part is that you can sub the veggies I use for anything you have in your fridge. These are my typical veggies but there have been plenty of times we are heading to a BBQ or just to a friends for dinner and we are bringing side dishes and I just toss in whatever veggies I have in the fridge. It always turns out great!
For the pasta — I highly recommend using Barilla brand. Not all gluten-free pastas are created equal. In fact, most of them suck. Barilla holds up and tastes the most like regular pasta. For this salad I either use penne or rotini. Both work great and you can use any type you prefer but I definitely recommend using this brand specifically. If you have another brand that you’ve used and LOVE, drop a comment below and let me know! I’d love to hear it!
