Easy VeGaN Pasta Salad

Easy Vegan Pasta Salad with pesto and zucchini

Hi friends, I am back after Easter. 🙂 The holidays were nice and besides all the travel I also managed to rest a bit. The only thing which was tough and kind of annoying was eating non-stop. And I am not saying here that I didn’t like the food, just that I ate 3 times more than I would on a normal day. But I guess that I am not alone 🙂

Nevertheless, I believe it is time to restart eating and do a short detox. For example, this easy VeGaN pasta salad is a perfect option. The preparation takes a maximum of 10 minutes (cooking the pasta takes 6 and cutting/chopping 4 minutes) and it tastes really nice 🙂 Enjoy the recipe and take care. Ciao 🙂
