Summer is such a fun time of year for food. As soon as the heat starts people are lighting up the grills, enjoying the abundance of summer fruits, and bringing their favorite summer pasta salad to the latest barbecue. Basically, we are all looking for any new creative way to eat without turning on the oven.
Hodgson Mills right now is hosting a Summer Pastabilities contest on Pinterest where they asked 50 bloggers to create a unique summer pasta recipe. Hodgson Mills is 100% all natural, made from 100% durum wheat, and 100% made in America. I was so excited when they contacted me because they truly are one of my favorite food brands to cook and bake with.
The pasta salad recipe I created for Hodgson Mills Summer Pastabilities contest is a Creamy Balsamic Pasta Salad with Vegetables and Feta. This recipe is perfect to bring to a summer barbecue or just enjoy with your favorite grilled item. It also makes a great main salad you can eat alone for lunch or dinner. However you decide to enjoy this pasta salad believe me you will not be disappointed.
The summer pasta recipe with the most Pinterest “likes” wins the Hodgson Mills Summer Pastabilities contest. I would love if you could head on over to Pinterest and like the Creamy Balsamic Pasta Salad recipe I submitted. The full recipe is posted on the Hodgson Mills website which you can get to through the Pinterest link. Thanks friends!
In addition, Hodgson Mills is also giving away $25 worth of assorted Hodgson Mills pastas to one lucky Skinny Mom’s Kitchen reader. How exciting!
