My Go-To Pasta Salad

Hi loves ❤️

I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes I use on a weekly basis when I meal prep. When I meal prep, I like to use quick and simple meals to ensure the meals won’t go to waste. My pasta salad is a staple I bring to work for lunch.

  • Pasta of Your Choice
  • Black Olives
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Italian Dressing

When I feel like I need to switch things up a bit, I will add in a few cucumbers, pepperoni, or cheese.

  • Boil pasta as directed,
    • Drain and put into plastic container
  • Cut up tomatoes and olives and put in a smaller container
  • Before work each night, combine pasta, desired olives & tomatoes, and amount of Italian dressing.
    • I use about 1 to 2 Tablespoons per 3/4 cup cooked pasta.

Keeping the ingredients in separate containers keeps the pasta from getting mushy throughout the week. If you are only cooking for one meal, or will use it within the next day, the pasta will be fine.

Have you tried this recipe? Let me know how it turned out below.

Much love,
