All organized for another week of menu planning. This week is filled with "real food" and easy dishes to throw together. Here's what's on our plan this week (scroll down for a yummy Pasta Salad recipe too):
Monday - Salmon, Broccoli
Tuesday - Greek Frittata, Salad, Bread
Wednesday - Rigatoni with Peas and Bacon
Thursday - Leftover Buffet
Friday - Pizza Night - homemade on the grill
Saturday and Sunday - TBD
Over the 4th of July, we decided to have a cookout. Since it was sort of last minute, I threw together a quick Pasta Salad from things I had in my refrigerator. It came out really well, so I'm sharing my "recipe" with you:
Farm Market Pasta Salad
Ingredients and Directions
- Cook 1 lb, short pasta - Farfalle, Small Shells, Rotelle, etc., drain.
- Chop miscellaneous vegetables. I had grape tomatoes, celery, a green pepper and red onion. You could use steamed asparagus or zucchini and any color peppers. Corn from the cob would sweeten this up as well.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Toss all ingredients in a large bowl with your favorite Italian Dressing (homemade, bottled, etc).
- Chill and Serve.
What's on your menu plan this week?
