Raspberry Pasta Salad {Delightful Morsel}

Here's another recipe I sort of made up on my own because I thought these things would go good together-and they do! I say "sort of" because I am sure someone else has a similar version-there is nothing new under the sun.

Total Time: About 15-20 minutes

  • One box of tri-color pasta
  • One bottle of Raspberry vinaigrette
  • 1 Cup of Cherry or Grape Tomatoes halved
  • 1 cucumber chopped (though these days I leave this out because one sliver of cucumber upsets my stomach, sadly)
  • 1 small can (about 1/2 cup) of chopped black olives
  • Parmesan Cheese (though Feta would also be yummy)

1. Cook pasta according to package.

2. Mix all ingredients together. You will notice I did not say the amount of vinaigrette. I apologize because I know this will annoy some people, but I actually don't know. I usually taste-test it and I know when is enough. I usually use about half the bottle.  

Super easy and a yummy, fruity alternative to mayo based pasta salads.

Delightful Cooking,

  1. I use the same ingredients (with Feta cheese) but use Tuscan House Italian Dressing. So good. But maybe I'll try the raspberry for a change.

    1. I'll have to try the Italian. I love the raspberry though, it makes it a nice salty and sweet flavor.
