I love fresh and easy dinner ideas. This one was thrown together super quick and could be eaten hot or cold, which really benefits me since I never seem to eat hot food anymore.
Not by choice, I promise you.
The great thing about this dish too is that a lot of the ingredients may be found in your pantry. That is a really great thing for those nights that you seriously don’t have any idea what to make for dinner! This is what I tossed in mine, but feel free to experiment with other ingredients to find your perfect pasta toss!
