Trader Joe’s Couscous
Basil plant in the garden
Organic Olive Oil (What would I do with out olive oil+ whether I want to admit it or not it is good lotion for your skin. Lesson learned from the Greeks!)
Super easy. Be careful not to over cook the spinach!
The finished product!:)
Yumm and it was seriously so easy!
Although I’m not a huge per say pasta salad and pasta girl, I really enjoyed this salad. It is light, full of flavors and is easy to make. You can use fresh veggies and have it for lunch or dinner. It’s even full of nutrients that will help energize you. Enjoy everyone!
