Pasta Dishes

Mixed Pasta Salad

This is a great recipe for packed lunches as a lighter option during the day.  It would also be great for a picnic or as a dish at a BBQ. Full of flavor and quick to make. It’s also a great way to use up leftovers. The flavors are vibrant and satisfying.

You could also bulk this recipe up to add more calories. A sweet potato would work well or some extra veg. Lemon Juice would be an extra delicious flavor or Avocado to add creaminess and some healthy fats. Pasta is quite good at keeping you full for longer though which makes it a great choice for lower calorie options.

If you enjoy this lighter option then I highly recommend you try the Lemon and Kale Spaghetti recipe. It has the benefits of Avocado and Kale mixed with the lovely tang of Lemon and the filling spaghetti, making it another perfect option for lunch.
