Here's the recipe for the pasta salad I made!
Cook 1/2 of a 16oz bag of any pasta shape ~I used Celentani
Let it cool off
Add 13.75oz can of Artichoke Hearts in Brine cut into quarters (less fat than the marinated)
Add a can of sliced olives
1 pint of grape tomatoes
Make Italian dressing (following directions on the packet. I used Simply Organic brand from Sprouts, it's healthier)
Pour dressing all over and mix well (add small amounts at a time and taste it. Add however much you prefer for flavor)
Then add grated parmesan cheese and toss it all togeher ~add as much as you like~ :)
Add salt & pepper
Put it the fridge for a couple hours so it's cold.
