Clean Eating Italian Spelt Pasta Salad

Clean Eating Italian Spelt Pasta SaladClean Eating Italian Spelt Pasta SaladClean Eating Italian Spelt Pasta SaladI ate lots of Italian pasta salad growing up. We had quite a few American friends that used to make it and it always tasted the same, no matter which one of them put it together. It was my all time favourite dish at any pot luck, summer BBQ or special occasion.

I didn’t ever have the recipe for it, but as I got older I often wondered how it was made. I came across a recipe for it a few years ago on Pinterest and I was surprised to find out that it was really simple to put together. Just pasta, veggies and Italian salad dressing. That was it! I figured it wouldn’t be too difficult to make a quick Italian dressing to go with this dish and I was right. It was so easy, so simple and so quick.

Clean Eating Italian Spelt Pasta Salad is great as a main meal or as a side dish. I know that I will be using this recipe all summer long to take to family BBQ’s, picnics and pot lucks. Husband and kid approved, this is one you have GOT to try!

Helpful Tip: If you want this to be suitable for Vegans or have a dairy intolerance, just leave out the feta cheese. If you cant get hold of spelt pasta you can replace it with 300g of regular wholewheat or 300g of brown rice pasta.
