simple summer salad


It’s been hot here. REALLY hot. Ok, maybe if you live in Florida or somewhere like there, you wouldn’t find our weather last week so hot but for us, it’s been crazy hot.

And for me, the first thing that goes with the heat is my appetite. Each night my brother or husband would ask, what do you want for dinner tonight, and my first thought was always, do popsicles count as a meal?

So when I finally rallied up to actually cook something, it had to be something light.

Tomato and Green bean parmesan salad

penne pasta (enough for 4 servings)

green beans (about 2 cups worth), cut in half

2 TBSPS of butter

2 tomatoes, cut into cubes

1/4 red onion, sliced

1/4 cup parmesan (or to taste)

pepper to taste

Cook pasta. Steam beans. Add butter to hot pasta. Stir in tomatoes, onions, and beans. Add parmesan and pepper. Voila. Serve hot or cool, as desired. Easy peasy and quick!
