My morning yesterday started out with some cooking! I woke up and was motivated to cook up the pasta salad recipe that one of my coworkers had given me, and was amazed when it came out so well! I usually tend to over cook pasta but it ended up being just right!

So heres the recipe!

By the way how awesome is the contrast between the turquoise bowl, and my marble counter tops?

I never took a picture of the pasta after it was all thrown together because my phone died, but basically just throw in the cooked and cooled pasta, tomato if desired mint, olive oil, and lemon, and toss until combined!
