I loved it when dinnertime approached and I’d hear the fabulous question, “Would you like to stay for dinner?” Yes, please!
One of my favorite dishes was served at my friend Kristen’s house. Her mom made the best pasta salad, full of noodles, veggies and Italian dressing. (I tried my very best to recreate it in December.)
My love for pasta runs strong, but I almost always enjoy it hot and often topped with marinara sauce. Today I changed things up and drew inspiration from Mrs. Bauer’s pasta salad.
My noodle bowl included:
- 1.5 servings Carba Nada pasta
- 4 tbsp. light Italian dressing
- 100 grams chopped yellow squash
- 50 grams chopped portobello mushrooms
- 60 grams chopped broccoli
I made the pasta salad after dinner yesterday and let it soak up the goodness from the Italian dressing overnight.
By lunchtime it was cold, zesty and delicious!
When you were growing up, did you enjoy eating meals with your friends’ families? Any favorite dishes?
