Thai Pasta Salad

Thai Pasta Salad

It’s Saturday so I didn’t have to eat leftovers for lunch, like I usually do all week, so I was excited to get to make a quick and delicious lunch. I didn’t get to this Thai Pasta Salad last week so I made it for lunch! It’s amazing! It has crisp, raw veggies, whole grain pasta, and a creamy and tangy peanut sauce. I used whole grain pasta instead of chickpea pasta, but if you wanted to add extra protein you could throw in some chickpeas or use chickpea pasta. I found this recipe on Pinterest and I’m so glad I decided to give it a try. It’s great for a weekend lunch, to bring to a party, or for leftovers. It’s almost pasta salad season so I’m sure this will be made a lot this summer! I’ll give my recipe below and the original as well.
