Everyone love a good Caprese salad (tomatoes, fresh basil, mozzarella with olive oil), so why not change it a bit and make it a pasta salad, and since it’s spring why not add a few green asparagus to celebrate that! This is such a simple idea, and takes no time to make. It’s a “feeling lazy today” kind of meal… Just need to cook the pasta of your choice (healthier versions too like quinoa pasta or kamut) a bunch of cherry tomatoes and those precious and fresh mozzarella balls, or the big balls of mozzarella do too, cut into small cubes. Although simple it’s so good and fresh. You’ll see you might end up doing it every other week this summer. This is a dish with delicate flavours, which means… we can taste that great extra-virgin olive oil we always keep for big occasions. By the way, olive oil doesn’t…

Chicken & Broccoli Pasta Salad is the ultimate pasta salad without any mayo! A simple, yet addictive cold pasta salad made with crunchy broccoli, chicken bits, red bell pepper, onion and feta cheese drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil! This Chicken & Broccoli Pasta Salad is an addictive meal, a “wake up in the middle of the night for a bite” meal… a “you have more than me” meal.

I’ve made this recipe with kamut fusilli, the ancestor of modern wheat, but also a filled with health benefits grain. Kamut is a whole grain, a great alternative for low-carb diet and diabetics. Although since brown pasta is not so appealing to the eye… we need to find a tasty way to make us forget about that color. That’s when the red beets pesto comes in the game! A healthy,tasty and colorful pesto that hides this less attractive brown pasta. I’m a big beets lover, but sadly there are often put aside because of their earthy flavor, but when used in combination with salty goat cheese and pistachios it balance out great the heavy earthy taste from the beetroot. Plus, Beets have that great ruby red color which make a great base for a romantic dinner, for you lovers…
