Today’s Warm Lemon Pesto Pasta Salad (that’s a mouthful!) combines some of my favorite flavors in the best way. It’s quick and easy to throw together and you’ll have dinner, lunch, or a party dish ready in under 25 minutes!
Who loves pasta salad? Raise your hand. *raises hand* Hi. Me. I love pasta salad! Well, I love pasta because carbs. And pasta salad is just, yes, please and thank you. It puts me in a good mood.
And this warm lemon pesto pasta salad is a belly-warming and good-for-your-soul kind of salad. It’s the kind of salad that makes you do a happy dance in your seat. You know, that silly shimmy-and-smile while you take your first bites dance. That one.
The lemony flavor and green punch from the asparagus brightens up even the darkest of days. And believe me, my days lately have been dark. Depressing. Cold. We are in the doldrums of winter here but this warm lemon pesto pasta salad makes things a bit easier. (Along with supplementing with vitamin d, of course. And planning vacations.)
This salad has me feelin’ like Giada. Only I don’t fake an Italian accent. (I’m pretty good at faking a brogue, though.)
