I was hungry for something substantial for lunch today and Amy and I had been to the supermarket this morning so we had a fridge full of options. I asked Amy what she wanted for lunch and suprise, suprise, she wanted pasta so pasta salad it was. Amy did taste the salad but as she has done since she started on pasta, she prefers hers plain with no sauce. I loved this salad and will definitely make it or variations thereof again.
Ingredients: cooked and cooled pasta shells, chopped cherry tomatoes, a can of mixed beans, chopped ham, shredded basil, half an avo chopped, grated parmesan and a dressing of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
