I LOVE PASTA SALAD! I love, love, LOVE it. I hadn't been able to eat it for a while due to diabetes. Then Highlow Kitty turned me on to Dreamfield's pasta, and I can actually eat that no problem. So now I'm making pasta salads with it. Today for the 4th of July for the cookout I am going to, I made a ranch pasta salad - rotini, mushrooms, raw broccoli and red pepper with ranch dressing. The only thing that could have made it tastier would have been some bacon, but I only eat turkey bacon these days and wasn't going to mess with it. I'm excited to eat it!
I also love "italian" pasta salads, or "mediterranean" pasta salads - loaded with olive oil, feta cheese and some form of garlic. I have been eating those for most of my life.
I am really curious about Asian pasta salads - like pasta with pad thai sauce or peanut sauce and veggies and tofu. That sounds really good- I'd have to stick with the Dreamfield's special pasta, but I'd love to get an Asian flavoring going on.
Can anyone recommend or post recipes for different pasta salads? Yum!
