Summer Ravioli Pasta Salad

Cheesy ravioli and fresh veggies marinated in a deliciously healthy Italian dressing-- this Summer Ravioli Pasta Salad is the perfect side for picnics, BBQ's and summer gatherings. 

During the Summer months, there's always something going on at our house. We're serial entertainers. While Mr. A typically mans the grill, the side dishes and decor typically fall on my plate. Which is why I find it helpful to serve dishes that can be whipped up in no time.

With only a few short weeks left until the official start of summer, I've been spending my evenings in the kitchen perfecting and experimenting with some of my favorite summer staple sides. If you've kept up with my blog for a while, you've noticed that I'm a fan of no-fuss, simple ingredient recipes. This Summer Ravioli Pasta Salad is all that and more. It combines all the things you love about pasta, while incorporating veggies marinated in a delicious Italian dressing that even your kids will love.

Don't believe me? Give it a shot.

Ingredients


1/2 head cauliflower (2 cups chopped)
2 heads broccoli (2.5 cups chopped)
1.5 cups cherry tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cucumber, chopped
1/2k spinach and cheese ravioli
1 teaspoon olive oil Dressing Ingredients
1/4 cup olive oil · 5 tbs red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon raw honey
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste



 Directions 


Cook the ravioli according to package directions. Drain and rinse in cold water. Drizzle olive oil over the pasta and coat to prevent sticking. Chop and prep all veggies.

 In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the dressing. In a large bowl, combine the pasta and vegetables, mix well.



 Pour 1/2 the dressing over the salad mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate 3-4 hours (or overnight) until ready to serve.

Note: if you prefer a more saturated pasta salad, add all of the dressing.

Light yet filling, this Summer Ravioli Pasta Salad is crisp and refreshing. Packed with broccoli, cauliflower and tomatoes, it looks as delicious as it tastes and is sure to be a crowd pleaser at your next picnic or BBQ!
