End of Summer Pasta Salad

5 Oct

We didn’t have much in the fridge except for almost wilted salad greens & green beans that day, neither of which I wanted to go to waste so I put together a cold pasta salad dish that came out really yummy. I didn’t get to measure any of this as I was just winging it. Next time I make it again, I’ll be sure to have measurements for you.

[ Ingredients ]
– pasta (I mixed normal with whole wheat Farfalle since there was not enough of either)
– green beans (cut ends and chop into medium pieces)
– salad greens
– chopped fresh basil
– minced garlic (to your liking – we like garlic a lot)
– extra virgin olive oil
– balsamic vinegar
– salt & pepper (to taste)

[ Process ]
– cook pasta per package directions
– when almost done, throw in the green beans then drain it in a pasta strainer, let it cool
– in a bowl, mix together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, salt & pepper
– throw in pasta & green beans, mix
– lastly, throw in the salad greens & fresh basil
– let cool in the fridge for a little bit or eat right away. It’s up to you.
