Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Warm weather is always a good excuse to break out those mason jars and whip up some seriously delicious picnic food. My kids are very active and love to go to the park and play for hours at a time, when it comes to keeping them fed and happy I like to opt for easy to make foods.

The typical culprits can be found in our picnic baskets, some fruit, juice, water, and bubbles. Yes, that’s right we keep bubbles in our picnic basket because Esuun loves to play with bubbles at the park.

Fresh Crisp Mediterranean Pasta Salad

This year Esuun and her best friends will be making their weekly debut to our local park for some fun girl time. I like to make sure that when we go we bring enough delicious food for not just the little ones to eat, but something for the moms too.

I got a thumbs up from the mom’s and I’m super excited to share it with all of you. This recipe was already easy to make, but adding in the Barilla Ready Pasta made it ridiculously easier.

NEW Ready Pasta from Barilla

The best thing about this recipe is it can be made in under 10 minutes flat! The cleanup is a breeze and it takes pasta salads to another level of easy hands down. The Barilla Ready Pasta can be ready in just 60 seconds. I love that it’s so quick and easy that even my little ones can help out.

The need to boil your pasta is obsolete and it’s so easy to just pop in the microwave and then tear open and add to any recipe. Barilla Ready Pasta is also only made with 3 simple ingredients: extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of sea salt, and the same quality Barilla pasta that shoppers trust with no preservatives.

This Mediterranean Pasta Salad looks delicious and easy to make! I like making pasta salads as a side dish when my husband and I cookout. I think the Mediterranean Pasta Salad would be a nice edition to our cookouts.
