30-Minute Dish: Italian Zucchini Pasta Salad Recipe6:12 PM
We have been sampling some pretty tasty products from Walmart these past few months, and July's bundle of items will be my last bundle. I enjoyed giving some of the new things a try with our meal plans, and this yummy Italian Zucchini Pasta Salad (inspired by a recipe from Wish-Bone) didn't disappoint!
Making it takes just a few ingredients, and the pasta salad itself is ready in 30 minutes (not including chill time). To make it, you will need:
- 1 package pasta (we like the Pasta Gourmet Italia Ocean Adventures Shapes Pasta, shown above)
- 3/4 to 1 cup Wish-Bone® Ristorante Italiano Garlic Parmesan Vinaigrette (amount depends on taste)
- 1 small zucchini
- 1 tablespoon garlic coconut oil (olive oil works, too)
- Salt and black pepper to taste
Cook pasta to al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
Meanwhile, wash and trim the end of the zucchini, then split lengthwise. Heat up the oil in medium-high heat in a saute pan, and place the zucchini cut side down in the oil. Cover with a lid and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove and allow to cool.
Cut the zucchini into small chunks. Add to the pasta. Mix in the vinaigrette dressing and salt and pepper to taste.
Chill one hour before serving!
You can find the pasta shapes and the dressing at Walmart stores, nationwide!
