Menu Round-up

Menu round-up is changing! I'll be posted one recipe that worked last week. And It's a good one too!
I have made this for my lunches and for my hubby I add leftover chicken. He loves it to.
The great thing about it is the longer you let it sit in your fridge, the better it will taste.

Easy Summer Pasta Salad


1 pound dry pasta
1 small yellow bell pepper, seeds removed and diced
1 small red bell pepper, seeds removed and diced
1 small orange bell pepper, seeds removed and diced
1 large seedless cucumber, chopped
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup store bought balsamic dressing (use your favorite brand)
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/3 cup finely chopped basil
Salt and black pepper, to taste


1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente; drain, then rinse with cold water to cool.
2. In a large bowl, combine pasta, peppers, cucumber, artichoke hearts, and tomatoes. Pour the balsamic dressing over the pasta salad and gently stir to combine. Add the feta cheese and basil and stir again. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Chill until ready to serve.

This is before the pasta was added. It's so colorful!
