Healthy Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is a fun, quick, and super simple meal option for the summer. It’s a BBQ staple. Last week, I knew it was going to be hot and I needed to make a big batch of something cool that would satisfy me all week long. Inspiration struck as I pillaged the cabinets of my kitchen.

Start by boiling the water and throwing your pasta of choice into the pot. In this case, I opted for gluten free elbows because I had a gluten free friend coming over for lunch the next day.

Next, it was time to choose my assortment of ingredients.

Chickpeas for a burst of protein.

Multi-colored veggies for necessary nutrients and colorful appeal.

Put it all together and toss in some sort of dressing or oil to keep things from sticking together in a yucky way.
