REAL, FRUGAL, HEALTHY, and FUN!!!
This is such a quick, yet legit tasting “pasta” salad. We’ve been pretty veggie crazy in my house this week. My husband is trying to lose weight and my boys and I agreed to be supportive. I came up with this salad, and it is so yummy! The zoodles give it the illusion of being a pasta salad, not just in looks, but even as you eat it. You really feel like you’re eating and Italian pasta salad!
