Green Goddess Pasta Salad

I made this Green Goddess Pasta Salad right after we got back from vacation, almost a month ago. I don’t know why I just wrote that, except that even though I really enjoyed it. I wasn’t compelled to write the post.

For one, recently when I get ‘plugged in’, as Wesley would say, I end up catching up on emails, comments and social media, then chat with my blogging buddies. Not that all that isn’t necessary, but then when I get all that done, I don’t want to sit any more to write a post.

So the next time I sit down to write a post, guess what? I get on email, social media and chat with my blogging buddies first.

It’s a vicious cycle…

So before our Summer veggies are gone, I’d better get this recipe to you.

I’ve mentioned it before, I’m a carb girl. I love pastas, rice, breads. But, I’m trying to eat more vegetables and I don’t want a bowl of vegetables or salad every meal. I thought if I combined a salad with some pasta that at least it would be better than a complete bowl full of pasta!

Enter: Green Goddess Pasta Salad!

It’s heart healthy and satisfying!

    Paula, absolute yum! LOVE the idea of adding ravioli (one of my faves!) to a salad. This is going on my salad list for sure! Thanks for sharing and pinning – happy Tuesday!

      Happy Tuesday, thank you, I just made this yesterday and liked it so much I had to share it immediately. The ravioli made the dish.

      No, sadly, on these pics I hadn’t studied enough to operate it. I just posted a pic I took today with new camera in the NNIB group. Tell me what you think of it.

      Oh, yeah, this salad was good, the sea salt and pepper almonds made it 🙂

    You had me at Green Goddess 🙂 This looks so delicious–and healthy (a definite win win). Looks like the perfect way to keep cool these hot summer days. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you, Amy, yes, it was so easy I actually made and photographed in less than 15 minutes (but I already had the dressing made). I was prob motivated by hunger at the time 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Paula, I have come visiting from Sweet 2 Eat Baking as part of the blog hop! I really love this post – the photography is so bright and colourful I imagine even my fussy 10 year old would be happy to eat these dishes! I blog at Slummy single mummy if you want to come and say hi any time. Jo x

    Ohh this salad looks so fresh and delicious, and I love how you used the cheese stuffed ravioli in it, that sounds absolutely delicious!

    Paula, Adding Cheese stuffed Ravioli is a good option. You get the satisfaction of eating something healthy and at the same time satisfying your craving for pasta. Great post. Will be trying it very soon…:)
