There will always be seasons that call for easier-than-normal meals. And I want to help you with a fresh inspiration for a week of easy meals.

Simple Pasta Salad



  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and rinse. Transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Toss in a couple slices of chopped bacon or a cup of chopped ham.
  3. Add one cup of each: crumbled feta cheese, sweet peas, and halved cherry tomatoes. Stir to combine.
  4. Whisk together 1/4 C olive oil, 2 Tbsp champagne vinaigrette (or sub white wine vinaigrette), 1 Tbsp honey, 1 tsp each of oregano, kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Drizzle over pasta mixture and toss to coat the salad thoroughly.
