Gluten Free Pasta Salad

These days two little girls are giving us a hard time getting out the door for our usual lunches. The other day we got creative when the fridge was looking sparse, but we wanted something fresh and filling. We came up with this gluten free pasta salad that turned out delicious!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

Gluten Free Pasta (we used Barilla’s GF Penne and were pretty impressed)

Any vegetables you have on hand

Italian Salad Dressing

Cheese for garnish

We cooked our pasta, tossed with pepper and olive oil and added fresh tomatoes, celery and beets. We then added canned corn and black beans, tossed everything together with Italian salad dressing and garnished with Parmesan cheese.

When we make this again, we will for sure add beets at the very end with the cheese, as it made the pasta a little purple while being tossed together.

This was so simple and delicious, we hope you’ll give it a try! A large serving is definitely filling enough as a main course or this would be a great side dish to serve at any occasion.
