Here’s a recipe with a twist to the usual pasta salad that is sure to be a crowd pleaser as a side dish or a meal.


What You Will Need:

–   4 cups of bow-shaped pasta

–   2 cups of cut up broccoli

–   ½ of mayonnaise

–   ½ cup of 2% milk

–   ¼ cup of chopped parsley

–   ¼ of chopped green onions

–   1 cup of diced avocados

–   ¼ cup of lime juice

–   sprinkle of salt and pepper

–   2 cups of diced ham

–   1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

–   2 diced tomatoes

–   2 cups of romaine sliced lettuce


What You Will Need to do:

1.   Cook the pasta for about 3 minutes.  Then add the broccoli and cook for 4 minutes so that the pasta is quite fully cooked yet.  After cooked, drain, spray with cool water and shake off dry.

2.   In a separate bowl, mix the mayonnaise, milk, green onions, parsley, salt, pepper and half of the lime juice together.  Toss the pasta and a few tablespoons of the dressing in a medium bowl.

3.   Now, put the salad together by:  tossing the avocados with the remaining lime juice in a large bowl in an even layer.

4.   Next, layer of the ham, then broccoli, followed by the pasta, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.

5.   Drizzle the remaining dressing on top.

There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
