I realized that I'd been bugging Lauren about adding photos to her blog and I hadn't added any to mine this week. So, here's one I took last week. I make this pasta salad a lot and never do it exactly the same twice. Whenever I cook pasta I cook the whole box. What we don't eat at the first meal may return as mac & cheese or pasta salad. Here's my "recipe":

leftover cold pasta, any shape
vegetables, whatever is left in the fridge. This one had roasted asparagus, some leftover broccoli/cauliflower/carrot mix, and some of my fresh tomatoes. I also have added raw carrots, red onion, green onion, raw broccoli, red bell peppers, lettuce, raw spinach, probably some other veggies I don't remember right now.
dressing - I have made a pasta salad dressing from a recipe before but here lately I've been mixing salad dressings that are already in the fridge - much quicker. I used Caesar vinegrette & ranch for this one. Never measure.
Parmesan cheese, optional
Guess what we're having for dinner tonight? Leftover pasta!
