From The TESR Test Kitchen

E-mails tell us we concentrate too much on sweets.  Really?

We do like our candy.

But this visit to the test kitchen is focusing on a non-sweet issue.

Ever share an apartment with a vegetarian?

Ty and Jim did in college when they roomed with Jess.  And they had to think of something other than cheese pizza to eat all the time.

They came up with Anything Pasta Salad.


The key to Anything Pasta Salad?  You can really add anything.

Don't have shells for the pasta?  Use angel hair pasta.  Or whatever form of pasta.  Cook according to directions.  Then drain and rinse and let cool.  If you're not using shells, we like to cut the pasta.

Add it to a bowl (after cut or not).  Add a small can of sliced black olives.


Add what you want.

Usually, for us, it's an onion, sliced, not chopped.  Some cherry tomatoes,  Three or four celery sticks thinly sliced.  A peeled cucumber chopped up.  Some radishes chopped up.  Maybe some carrots.  Maybe some peas.

Add a dash of celery salt, a dash of garlic powder and as much minced, dried onions as you want.

Add a third of a Newman's Own bottle of salad dressing.  We like Balsamic vinaigrette.


Cover and place in the fridge.

You can then eat it cold.  If you like it hot, warm a bowl in the microwave.
