Broccoli Bacon Pasta Salad

This week has been crazy. Some really good things happened, mixed in with some bad and crazy things. It had been one of those weeks where it is just exhausting. Which explains why I have not posted since last Friday.

I sent out my menu plan in an email newsletter this week and that is about all I have done online since Friday. That is the longest I have gone in awhile without posting. I didn’t even do much on social media this week. It has just been one of those week.

I glad to be back today though with a new pasta salad recipe!

Broccoli Bacon Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is a great meal for this time of year. It is easy to make. It can also be made ahead and used for lunch or dinners. It is also easy to change up by adding different ingredients to it.

Today’s recipe is pretty basic, but you could easily add some mushrooms or tomatoes to it to change it up. If you don’t like broccoli leave it out and add other things. Pasta salads are easy to make just how you like them.

I love making pasta salad for dinner during warmer weather because it makes for an easy main dish without heating up the house. This pasta salad will be on the menu plan a lot in the coming months!

  1. Wow, this certainly looks like a refreshing salad!
    And this is perfect because I’m planning to collect recipes that use broccoli, to get the kids to eat them. And I already found a recipe for Cavatelli and Broccoli.

    Thanks for the recipe! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. My whole family loved this! Pasta salad is usually not my thing, but this was delicious. One toddler wasn’t into the raw broc (but still ate lots of pasta) and the other cleaned his plate (that NEVER happens)! I threw in some diced leftover ham too.

    • I am so glad that your family enjoyed it. My teenage son picked most of the broccoli out of his as well. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love that you added diced ham. That is why I love pasta salad so much. They are so easy to change up with what you have on hand.
