I'm sure this has happend to you....An afternoon get together turns into a "Why don't you stay for dinner?" or you are asked to bring something last minute to a gathering while the baby is having a meltdown because he needs a nap. Cook something? Go to the store? The thought of either makes you sweat but you say "Sure, no problem!"
This is my In A Pinch Pasta Salad Recipe for those occasions that just seem to pop up. Best of all its super cheap to make!
Cook 1/2 a package of your favourite pasta as per package directions. Drain and let cool slightly. Add 1/2 a bottle of your favourite italian salad dressing, whatever veggies you have in the fridge (I like onion and broccoli but whatever your preference) and two large palm fulls of parmesan cheese. Stir and refrigerate! Enjoy!
Do you have any in a pinch recipes or classics that you turn to all the time?
