Hi everyone! If you take the time and energy to invest in making your food at home, it can be beautiful and wholesome, just like my video game-playing, sarcastic,faux-hawk wearing 8 year old who believed in and waited for the tooth fairy after losing his first tooth. Too sweet to bear.
1 1/2 lb pasta, (can use whole wheat Barilla)
1/2 lb small cubes of queso fresco or other mild cheese like mozzarella
2 cups chopped peppers, I used spicy orange piquillo peppers
3 cups salad greens
1/2 cup dressing-more to taste (make a batch of 1 cup olive oil, 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar, 1-2 TBS honey, salt and pepper to taste)
1 tsp salt
1/4 -1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
Cook pasta, drain it and let cool.
Add cheese, peppers, salad greens and salt and pepper
Pour on dressing and coat salad and pasta
P.S. This is great to bring to brunches, BBQs or any other type of potluck
