Yummy Pasta Salad Recipe




Good Afternoon Dearies,

and Happy Happy Friday to you all..............



Well, here is the recipe for that "Yummy Pasta Salad"

I told you about on Wednesday.






I use this pasta cause it is multigrain, but the person I
got the recipe from uses bowtie pasta cause she said
the Pesto sticks to it better! Your choice!!

Pasta Salad Recipe

1 Package of pasta

1 Jar of Basil Pesto

1 Jar of Marinated Mushrooms drained
(mine was Vigo Brand)

1 Jar of Sundried tomatoes (drained)

2 small cans of sliced black olives (drained)

1 large onion diced

1 large bell pepper diced

granulated garlic powder to taste

salt and pepper to taste



Cook the Pasta as package directs, drain and rinse,
Put it in a large bowl (cause you will have to mix it
together after adding all the ingredients)
add Pesto Sauce and mix well, then add mushrooms,
sundried tomatoes, black olives, chopped onions and peppers,
garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.

Mix Well and Eat. This salad is good hot or cold.
I usually eat it room temp. the first time, if I don't have
to make it ahead of time, and put it in the fridge.

Sometimes the next day I will add some cooked chopped
chicken breast just to change it a little bit.


If some people like it cold and some hot,
those that like it warm or hot can just put it on
their plate and stick it in the microwave for
about 15-20 seconds.


Well, Bon Appetit!!


Blessings,

Nellie
