Angel Hair Summer Pasta Salad

Angel Hair Summer Pasta Salad

With summer almost here and most kids out of school, it’s the perfect time for light cooking.  This pasta salad will hit the spot.  It can be prepared in a short time.  Plus, it’s a lightweight salad.  It’s perfect for enjoying as lunch or dinner, especially when you’ve put in all that working out during the day.  If you’re growing a garden this summer, as I am, then you have the perfect dish for using those homegrown vegetables.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of cooked angel hair pasta
  • 1 cup of diced tomatoes (or less…I just love tomatoes!)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped cucumbers
  • 1/4 cup of Italian Dressing
  • 2  1/2 teaspoons Salad Supreme seasoning
  • 1/2 cup of salad shrimp
  • parsley flakes (optional)
  • salt and pepper for seasoning (optional)

Directions:

Begin by cutting tomatoes into small pieces.  I used grape tomatoes, but you may use any kind of tomatoes. Set aside.

Cook angel hair pasta.  I like this pasta because it only takes about 4 minutes to cook.  When done, rinse pasta with cold water to stop it from further cooking.  I normally cut my pasta into smaller pieces using a knife and fork after rinsing.  It’s just easier to work when stirring.
