An Easy Pasta; Lends a Sweet Note

Using Saucy Mama’s Apricot Ginger Mustard, I created a sweet and tangy pasta  salad. Not only is the dish tangy and sweet, but most of all, easy! If you’ve not used broccoli slaw mix, you’re in for an additional treat!


Apricot-Ginger Pasta Salad

Prep time: 30 minutes (20 minutes chill time)

13.25oz. box whole wheat Rotini pasta, cooked and cooled

12oz. bag broccoli slaw mix

1/4 cup diced apricots (optional)

1/4 cup sesame seeds (optional)

In a small bowl whisk together yogurt, Saucy Mama Apricot Ginger Mustard, oil, and honey. Taste. If necessary, add 1/4 teaspoonfuls of honey until desired taste is acquired.

My love of cooking has taken over. I was on the net one day and saw an ad for a recipe contest. I entered. Then, I entered another. Then another, and so on and when I won a contest... an entire year's worth of tomato products, I was hooked. Since then, I've entered many many different recipe contests. I have won a trip to New York, entries into cook-offs, a recipe published in a Kraft/Paula Deen cookbook and many food products and food related items. I enjoy cooking and entering recipe contests. I hope I spark an interest in others to create something they can be proud of. I'm always getting more ideas from the internet. Wow, I remember not having the internet years ago. It's a God send and I'm trying to cover every inch of the food sites!! Join me in my quest to keep fresh ideas flowing and creating new and exciting dishes.
