I’ve been meaning to post this delicious recipe for Pasta Salad with Blue Cheese, Walnuts, and Arugula, which made the cover of a recent Weight Watchers Weekly, for a while now. As soon as I saw it I had a feeling I would love it. Filled with many of my favorite ingredients (pasta, arugula, blue cheese, grape tomatoes and walnuts), this is everything I want in a salad – easy to make, pretty to look at, and delicious to eat.
And I was right. Fresh and delicious, I have a feeling this Pasta Salad with Blue Cheese, Walnuts and Arugula will become a lunch and dinner staple for me this spring and summer. It is such a great reminder of how tasty and satisfying salads you make yourself at home can be when you get creative and show them a little love. This recipe is definitely a keeper in my book.
I made a couple of minor changes, substituting chopped scallions for the chives and using spiral pasta (fusilli) instead of bowties (farfalle). A little chopped cooked chicken or turkey would be a nice addition too.
