Josh and I both work so some nights we don’t feel like making anything fancy…ok, a lot of the nights we don’t. So thank goodness for cereal and pasta, two staples in our house. The other night we went with pasta.
Have any of you tried some of the flavored pastas out there? I boiled up some basil linguni and was pretty impressed. The basil flavor was nice, not too overpowering, and it tasted great with my fresh veggie sauce. I topped it off with fresh basil and parmesan. This was a great meal in minutes.
I also made a quick salad, the more veggies the better:) So if you are tired from work, school, kids, life, etc. make pasta for dinner. We are always pleased and full when we do:)
Pasta and salad is one of my favorite meals.
pasta and salad are some of my favorites too….this looks like a great hearty meal!
This looks so good- both the salad and the pasta! I love when there are more vegis than carbs or meat! Yayyy! Thanks for your comment on Josh’s snack 🙂 He is just starting to get into my blog and its so fun to “tag team” like you and your Josh do!
Looks like a great, healty meal!
What do you mean nothing fancy?? It looks wonderful!
What a beautiful pasta and heart healthy to boot!

What a meal!
Haven’t seen the basil pasta but can’t wait to try it when I do find it.
Those colors! I can just FEEL all those antioxidants shimmering up at me.
Yum! I am with you — pasta makes the best weeknight meal! I will often throw a bunch of veggies, meat, cheese, etc with pasta — the hubs calls it "pasta & stuff" — the only problem is when I hit on a particularly yummy combo and can't quite remember what I did and duplicate it again! Oh well, you dinner looks gorgeous, as always!
We both work too so pasta is always on our weekday menu. This looks yummy
That pasta looks awesome and so does the salad. Is that artichokes in the salad? I could eat them all by themselves.
Brilliant! I love pasta. Wheat pasta is my favorite. I need to stock up on recipes other than spegetti or meatballs…any tips?
Even if not tired I would make this! Pasta is always a staple here too. I would love to try basil flavored one! I only had carrot and tomato I think. Great meal.
I love pasta and salad…it’s what I am making for dinner tonight. The artichoke hears looks great on the salad.
That is a great looking dinner!! Love all the veggies in the pasta…and that salad, yum!
