Spring Side Dish: Italian Pasta Salad

In preparation for lunch guests this past weekend, I pulled out the recipe for an old favorite: Italian Pasta Salad. This is my favorite pasta salad recipe because it has so many veggies and a great parmesan-Italian flavor. Our children all love garbanzo beans, black olives, tomatoes, and cucumbers, and they consider pasta to be a special treat -- so when they saw what we were making they could hardly wait for lunch time to arrive! :)

Eliyahu helps make the pasta salad

Eliyahu (age 8) was my helper for slicing and dicing the vegetables. I used tri-color spiral pasta from a Costco multi-pack. The first time I purchased pasta at Costco, I was surprised by the quality difference. Their pasta holds together well and has a good texture.

Notice my lovely new Corelle plates? The tile floor in this kitchen hasn't been as kind to my dinnerware as I'd hoped. My thoughtful brother Reuben and sister-in-law Mariel went thrift store shopping for me and found quite a few Corelle bowls and plates, including some neat designs. This plate (above) is one of my favorites. :)

Channah helps wash the dishes

Channah (2) helped me wash the dishes that wouldn't fit in the dishwasher. When we finished I took off my gloves, and next thing I knew, she had put them on. What a sweet girl. I think all little ones LOVE getting to wash dishes and play in the sink. :)

One of my favorites, you can't go wrong with that dish. The kids are getting so big and are so helpful around the house. You are so blessed! :)

Thanks, Sydney! I do feel very blessed. :)

My mother and grandmother both had that set of Corelle, I inherited my grandmother's set when she passed. She still had the whole set, even the gravy boat! I love those dishes.

Karen, how wonderful! I'm sure those dishes are a treasure. :)

I have these dishes, too. I had them years ago, discarded them, and bought them again recently. I have the stacking bowls to match. Love 'em!

Where did you find the Corelle? Online, or was it at a local thrift store? :)
