Easy Recipe: Cold Pasta Salad

Hi, I was able to get a recipe courtesy of FOODIE, a food magazine, that I tried out and i was good. I want to share this recipe to all of you. The best part is you can use leftovers to create this wonderful salad. So we waste not and want not.


3-4 cups leftover pasta (penne, spaghetti, fettuccine)

2 cups leftover sausages, cut into thin slices

1 pc celery stalk, cut into thin slices

1/2 cup hard cheese (cheddar, edam, gruyere or parmesan), cut into small pieces

1/2 cup lemon-olive oil dressing

4 pcs fresh basil leaves, cut into small pieces

* salt and pepper to taste

In a salad bowl toss all the ingredients together. Season according to taste


juice of 1 lemon

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 tsp lemon zest

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

In a mixing bowl, whisk together all the ingredients, until well blended

It's delicious and healthy. Try this and you'll see.
