On Friday, Charis and I decided to make Drew a few lunches with a recipe from the eMeals blog-Pizza Pasta Salad. It was so easy, and my daughter has started to take a lot of interest in helping mama in the kitchen.
Pizza Pasta Salad *Note: Recipe can be found on eMeals blog*
  • 8 oz uncooked whole grain penne pasta
  • 4 oz package mini turkey pepperoni slices
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2.25 oz can sliced black olives, drained
  • ½ (8-oz) block part-skim mozzarella cheese, cut
  • into chunks
  • ½ cup bottled light Italian dressing
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Rinse with cold water to cool.
  2. Combine cooked pasta, pepperoni, tomatoes, bell pepper, olives and cheese in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing, and toss to coat.
  3. Divide salad evenly among 6 containers.

We made it almost exactly as it was written with two exceptions: 1)I decided to leave out the olives, since I don't like them. 2)We used macaroni. I thought we had penne, but realized after cutting everything up, that we only had macaroni.

My husband, who does not like tomatoes or peppers, thought it was delicious. He ate the peppers, but not the tomatoes. My daughter, who usually has no interest in eating vegetables, ate everything. Both want me to make it again.
