I threw together a pasta salad using some of the above vegetables and my patio grown basil to go with our weekly steak/chicken combo. (This is a way to sneak more chicken into my diet since Mr. Moon looooves red meat)
Side note: my entire extended family has a soft spot for gnomes.
Ingredients: 2 cups cooked whole grain pasta, a hand full of shredded fresh basil, two medium tomatoes chopped, small chopped cucumber, Tbsp minced garlic, Tbsp olive oil, 1/2 c shredded mozzarella, kosher salt and ground pepper
Directions: Cook pasta according to package directions, add a dash of kosher salt to boiling pasta. Drain. Over low heat, add veggies, olive oil and garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper. After a few minutes, once veggies are warm all the way through, remove from heat. Top each portion with mozzarella.
