Colorful Pasta Salad

Colorful Pasta Salad

My kids love to cook with me. This is a great recipe to have kids help with. You can precook the pasta and have them put everything else together themselves.

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. cooked pasta
  2. broccoli florets
  3. tomatoes
  4. olives
  5. peas
  6. pesto sauce
  1. This is such a flexible recipe. You can use any kind of pasta and add-ins you want. I precooked a box of bow tie pasta and got all the other ingredients ready before calling the kids over to help. This keeps the mess to a minimum.

  2. My daughter added our cooked pasta to a large bowl and added about three tablespoons of the ready made pesto. She mixed this up to coat the pasta.

  3. Next went in our veggies. We used a cup of frozen broccoli and just let it defrost beforehand. In with the broccoli went tomatoes, olives and some fresh peas.

  4. A good mixing was all that we had left to do.

  5. They couldn't even wait for a fork!
