I hope everyone had an amazing Spring break! We have finally recovered from our trip to Viriginia and even squeezed in a quick trip to Disneyland this past weekend…I know, I’m addicted to Disney. (You can follow me on my new Disney Instagram account @disneymomontimeout for ALL things Disney!) The boys have started official swim team practices which means that I’m at the pool for TWO hours, five nights a week.

Here’s what I’m loving about this recipe…it’s crazy easy, like once the pasta is cooked, we’re talking 5 to 10 minutes of prep and done. My boys GOBBLED it up. This pasta salad is packed with all kinds of yummy stuff like black beans, corn, cilantro, grilled chicken, green onions, and tomatoes. It’s filling and delicious and exactly what my little swimmers need.
