Mediterranean Pasta Salad + Giveaway

Mediterranean Pasta Salad + Giveaway
I am in love with this pasta.  It combines the BEST whole wheat
pasta, from Hodgson’s Mills of course, with some of my favorite summer
vegetables.  Eggplants and tomatoes are two things that I love about
summer; they just taste of summer to me, and I love that all the vegetables in here can be made on the grill.There is
nothing worse in the summer than heating up the oven, that’s for sure!  I
don’t know how its possible but for the tiny, tiny space our apartment
is, it heats up FAST.  We can have all the windows open (we’re lucky, we
have a whole wall of windows), but the heat is only going in one
direction – towards me!  One way to beat the heat is to make the delicious pasta salad.  Refreshing and delicious it just DRIPS summer!

Mediterranean Pasta Salad
Serves: 6-8
1 box of Hodgson’s Mill Medium Shell Pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 green peppers
1 onion
2 eggplants
2 tomatoes, diced
4 ounces herbed goat cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper

Cook the pasta according to package directions.   Drain the pasta, toss with olive oil, and set in the refrigerator.  Halve the peppers and thickly slice the onion and eggplants.  Grill the vegetables on a grill over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, pulling each vegetable off as they are soft and slightly charred.  Roughly dice the vegetables, toss with tomato.  Mix the vegetables with chilled pasta, goat cheese, salt, and pepper.  Mix until goat cheese coats the vegetables.  Serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator
