So the lovely Meej & Niall had their baby shower over the weekend. I was on the hook to bring some food. I hemmed and hawed over what to bring then my Mother's voice filled my head. "Make it easy for yourself. Don't make a whole bunch of different dishes, just make one really big one." So guess what I made? Ahhh yeah, good 'ol pesto pasta salad but with a healthy twist. Rice pasta instead of reg pasta, Best Pesto Ever, a whack load of yellow & red peppers, fresh sundried tomatoes, and kalamata olives. The beauty of it - you can add whatever you want in whatever quantity you like. This was such a hit and so easy to make that it should be everyone's go-to potluck dish.

Photo Cred Cat Let's take a salad, smoothie break and make some pasta for dinner. This recipe is so delicious and easy it's a bit of a joke. Veggie Noodles 2 med zucchini OR squash OR jiciama 1 tsp Himalayan pink salt Use a spiralizer or a peeler to noodle the zucchini (peel skin first to trick the kiddies), sprinkle with salt and set aside to allow it to weep out excess water while you make your sauce. My favourite sauce for these noodles is Best Pesto Ever, mixed with some chopped peppers and tomatoes to make a delicious, satisfying and vibrant dish.
