Ethan's 4th birthday party & tricolor pasta salad
Monalisa's mom Rosie brought a delicious pasta salad to round out a yummy meal of hot dogs, chili, nachos, a 6 foot sub, cake and ice cream. Rosie was kind enough to share the recipe with us:
Tricolor pasta salad
1 lb tricolor pasta
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 16 oz can whole black olives
12 cherry tomatoes or 2 roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup Italian dressing
2 tbsp. parmesean cheese
1/2 cup broccoli florettes
black pepper to taste
Cook your pasta until it is al-dente. Then drain and add to a large bowl with diced onion, black olives and tomatoes. Add your dressing, cheese, broccoli and pepper and stir.
This a pretty easy pasta salad to make, economical and it is a crowd pleaser.
Ethan was happy because he pulled the lucky string on the piñata, and all of the candy fell, to the great delight of his primos.
¡Feliz cumple Ethan!
