Simple Summer Pasta

pasta salad

Lunch is always a quick-fix for me.  I’m usually keeping busy during the day, so I don’t have much prep time, nor do I want to spend time cooking.  I’ll spend maybe one day cooking then just pair up a protein with some carbs (veggies, fruit and/or starch).  A brand new Aldi just opened near us and I finally got a chance to shop there over the weekend.  That place is amazing!  I found a few different kinds of pasta with seasoning packets included, made by Specially Selected.  Once bag of pasta makes enough servings for a week and then some.  It’s been so hot lately that a cool pasta salad is quite appetizing.  If you’re super lazy like me, grab a protein (chicken, fish, turkey, etc) from the salad bar at Whole Foods.
