Tuesday, April 3, 2012

Did anyone try the Italian appetizer recipe?  Like??  You should let me know how you feel about it and also let me know if there are any Italian recipes you are looking for and I'll check out what I have! 

Moving right along with our Simply Italiano week, next is our Soup/Salad section...I thought a nice salad would be nice.  I love pasta, as you will start to see the more I post, so this not only has the nice crisp greens we all enjoy, but pasta too :)  So...grab your aprons and hold on to your chef hats!  We're gunna get cookin' up something good :)

Rigatoni Salad

12 ounces uncooked rigatoni pasta, cook according to directions on package
1 package (10-ounces) frozen snow peas or sugar snap peas, thawed
1 to 3 cups chopped greens, such as arugula, frisee or any crisp lettuce
8 ounces cherry tomatoes, cut into halves
1 medium red of yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1/2 red onion, cut into thin strips
1/3 cup sliced black olives
1/3 to 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Combine all ingredients expect cheese in large salad bowl.  Toss gently to mix and coat all ingredients.  Sprinkle with cheese, if desired.

Note: Vary the amounts of each ingredient according to your taste.  Substitute steamed green beans (whole or cut) for the peas or add steamed, sliced carrots, zucchini or yellow squash

Serves about 8
