Easy Summer Veggie Pasta
– Elbow macaroni pasta (I gluten-free Quinoa pasta)
– Cherry tomatoes
– Sea salt
Step 1- Cook your pasta according to the directions. I used Gluten-free pasta for the first time and was pleasantly surprised by how tasty it was. I thought there would be a huge difference but there truly wasn’t. Both Will and I thought this tasted delicious and are thrilled to have a g-free pasta option for easy summer meals.
Step 2- Drain your pasta and run it under cold water while mixing it until it is cool.
Step 3- Add a heaping spoonful of mayonnaise and mix it into the pasta. The amount of mayo will depend on how much pasta you use and your taste. I used almost a whole box of pasta and about 3 tablespoons of mayo.
Step 4- Dice your cherry tomatoes, celery, and broccoli (or whatever your fav veggie combo is) into bite size pieces and add them into your pasta. I added about a half a cup of each veggie.
