maple autumn pasta salad.

Posted by

Everything about this pasta salad screams AUTUMN!!!!  No really, it actually screams.  No not really, but your tummy screams of excitement because it’s so delicious! 🙂 Anyway, silliness aside, this pasta salad is sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy, and yummy.  I added Siggi’s yogurt to make it creamy along with adding more protein to the dish.  I found a delicious maple balsamic dressing by Stonewall Kitchen at Wegman’s.  I believe it goes perfectly with this salad!

RECIPE:

  • 1 box bow-tie pasta
  • 1 5.3 oz container Siggi’s plain yogurt
  • 1 8 oz container feta cheese
  • 3 cups shaved brussel sprouts (I got these already prepared at Wegman’s)
  • 1 & 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 jar maple balsamic dressing (11 oz)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • cook pasta according to instructions
  • in a large bowl, add about 1/4 cup dressing and shaved brussel sprouts
  • once pasta is done and drained, pour over brussel sprouts and mix
  • let cool until about room temperature
  • add dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, and feta cheese
  • in a separate bowl, mix the rest of the dressing together with yogurt until smooth
  • add to the pasta and mix until all the pasta is coated
  • serve & enjoy!
