QUICK & EASY PASTA SALAD WITH BALSAMIC GLAZE

picture of easy holiday Italian pasta

In my easy holiday kitchen I show dishes that can easily and quickly be cooked somewhere else, in about 20 minutes, with ingredients from the supermarket and no fancy kitchen toys. They work without onions and garlic, but of course it’s fine to add them.The first one is an Italian pasta salad that leaves room for all kinds of variations. 

 

Ingredients

3 cups pasta (300 g)
1 carrot
1 tomato
olive oil
1-2 teaspoon smoked paprika (or just paprika)
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1-2 teaspoon Italian herbs (oregano, thyme or mixture etc.)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

rocket salad, spinach or any lettuce mixture
balsamic glaze
1 tablespoon pine nuts
salt and pepper

 

Instructions

Cook about 3 cups of pasta according to instructions. Cut 1 tomato and 1 carrot. If you like you can cut it into cherry blossoms like I do here.

If you want to add onions and garlic, they would go into the skillet first. 

Sauté the carrots in a little oil, add salt, Italian herbs, smoked paprika, red pepper flakes and maple syrup and stir well.

Feel free to add tofu or any meat substitute oder beans or other veggies, anything you found in the shops and like, or still have in the fridge and want to use up, there’s endless variations of this dish. 

Now drain the pasta und add it, stir-fry a little, and it’s ready.

Put it on the plates und roast the pine nuts in the skillet for a moment.

Add salad and tomatoes to the pasta, a little salt and pepper and balsamic glaze. 

If you don’t know balsamic glaze yet, you really need to try it, it’s a thick syrupy sauce made of balsamic vinegar, it’s delicious on many dishes and sandwiches and I think it’s available everywhere meanwhile. 

And now add the pine nuts.

By the way, this pasta salad still tastes great when cooled off, so you can also put it in a box and take it somewhere.
