This recipe is one of my very favorites and I hope you enjoy it.
Box of Pasta (Spaghetti, Rigatoni, Penne)
1 1/2-2 Cups diced Tomatoes
1 Can of Olives, sliced
3/4 cup of Frozen or Fresh Peas
1/4 cup Capers (optional)
Packet of Good Seasons Italian Dressing, prepared with Balsamic Vinegar
- Boil pasta to the instructions on the box. While the pasta is cooking, prepare the Good Seasons Italian Dressing to the instructions on the packet. Normally when I use this dressing, I use red wine vinegar but for this recipe I use Balsamic vinegar.
- In a deeper skillet, combine all the ingredients including the dressing and heat over medium heat until warm. My family eats this dish cold but I prefer it warm. If you would like to eat it cold, thaw your peas ahead of time.
- When the pasta is done, mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. And enjoy. My family also add's fresh parsley but I'm not a fan of the leafiness so I omit this but feel free to add some to yours :)!
I hope you all enjoy this simple summer dish and if you need some meat in your meals, adding some grilled chicken breasts to this would be delicious!
