IntroductionSimple pasta salad that keeps well for quick meals. Simple pasta salad that keeps well for quick meals.
1 box Brilla pasta (bowtie, shells, penne) (apx. 14 oz dry)
One can chicken breast meat in water (12.5 oz)
2 C fresh broccoli chopped
2 C carrots chopped
1 C grape tomatoes (or cherry, whatever you have)
2 Red or Orange sweet peppers chopped
1 C fresh zuchini chopped
1 small can sliced black olives - rinse well (omit if you're watching sodium)
1/2 C Fat Free Cranberry Balsamic Dressing
You can substitute any veges you like and any fat free balsamic dressing will work. I also like to use raspberry balsamic and raspberry/walnut vinaigrette. I also like to add fresh spinach in the last step (I don't blanch it with the other veges). I like to use Brilla because of the extra protein and it cooks and keeps really well without getting too startchy and stickie.
Tuna also works well, make sure it's in water. Grilled chicken or fish is also a great addition if you dont' want to use canned.
