With so many of us housebound for the unforeseeable future, it’s tempting to let our diet slip, stock up on shelf stable, processed food, and stop thinking about nourishing our body.
I get it, I’ve been there.
However, there are so many healthy, shelf stable, real foods that can make delicious and nutritious meals! This is one of them…
Have these ingredients on hand at all times so that when there is a nation wide emergency, or you just want a good meal, you can whip this up quick. They are also good year round, thrown in salads, added to dressings or pestos, and used in a sandwich. But this pasta salad is my favorite way to use them and I hope you enjoy it too!
Note: The one ingredient that is not shelf stable is the goat cheese. I mean this, the salad is still delicious without it, so you can omit it and still be happy. You could also throw some cooked chicken on top if you want a bit more protein.
Stays good in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Naturally Vegetarian, can make vegan by omitting the cheese.
Can be gluten-free if you use a gluten-free pasta.
Perfect for meal prepping! Just make a large batch at the beginning of the week and pull from it throughout the week.
