    You ask and you shall receive my friends!

    Your new go-to quick and easy pasta salad recipe is HERE! You guys have been asking for more lunch and dinner recipes with minimal prep work and as a new mama with very limited time, I couldn’t agree with this request more.

    I have been making a variety of different pasta recipes over the past couple of months for fast and easy fuel. I love how they stay well in the fridge for a few days so I can easily heat them up or just eat them cold and at room temperature like I do for this Healthy and Hearty Greek Veggie Pasta Salad.

    Greek salads are by far my favorite kind of salad ever. I used the traditional greek salad ingredients and adding in a few of my other go-to’s and tossed them in a super simple homemade dressing recipe. This whole thing took me 15 minutes to prep and make! You will need a leafy green of choice. I personally love using Organic Girl’s baby spinach or baby arugula in this recipe. It adds such a good crunch and helps me get some extra greens in. Something that I am not too good at. I find that if I leave a few kinds of Organic Girl greens in my fridge at all times, I am more likely to eat more greens since I don’t want them to ever go to waste. Crazy and weird idea? Yes, but it works!

    You will also need your go-to pasta, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, feta and I also added in roasted chickpeas for a crouton-like crunch.

    Feel free to eat this recipe cold, warm it up or at room temp. Room temperature is my personal favorite way.

    A few of my other go-to lunch and dinner recipes lately are: Sesame Peanut Tahini Noodles15-minute Vegan Pad Thai and 6-ingredient Creamy Tomato Basil Pasta.
