Super simple (as I try to be), but delicious pasta salad that's 100% plant-based, completely satisfying, and totally versatile - you can add whatever you want to make this fit your flavor pallet.
Another thing I love about this recipe, is you can really easily adjust the size to however many people are eating - or make ahead and have some meal prepped lunches for the week!
Here we go!
Pasta of your choice, I used shells
1 Green & 1 Yellow squash / zucchini
Handful of cherry tomatoes
Herbs of your choice! (garlic, chives, oregano, basil, parsley - any combination!)
Bring pot of water to a boil, add pasta
Slice the zucchini & squash lengthwise, cutting off the ends
Coat in olive oil & seasonings
Grill to your liking - I like a little bit of a char, but not too much!
While the pasta is boiling & zucchini is on the grill, cut the cherry tomatoes in half
Drain the pasta, chop the grilled zucchini, and then add everything to a bowl!
I told you, this is so simple! And you can really make it your own. Here's a few suggestions you may want to add:
Use a bean-based pasta, or just add beans for more protein
Add grilled tofu
If you prefer a sauce instead of garlic & olive oil, that would work too!
