Colorful Pasta Salad

This was a bit too easy.

What to do with leftover pasta... First, who has leftover pasta?  Somehow I did... so I made a quick pasta salad of sorts.  And boy was it good.  I won't delay you any further with my musings... The secret? Dried dill. Oh my... dill, you are my second favorite herb after thyme. You can never have enough thyme.  Heh.

2 servings

3/4 cup cold cooked pasta
2 cups broccoli and carrots
2 TBS "mayo"
1 tsp dried dill
2 tsp dried parsley
1 TBS onion flakes
pinch salt

1. Steam the carrots and broccoli together in a small pot til they look bright but not soggy.  Add the pasta to heat it through.

2. Dish into bowls and divide the rest of the ingredients in two.  Mix and enjoy!
Simple enough, eh?  Not bad, if I do say so myself.

So, since this is such a short post, I'll amuse you with a list of celebrities who are scientologists.  You thought I was going to say vegan, didn't you?  Ha!  This is far more amusing.
