Sauteed Pasta Salad

This is one of those throw together salads with whatever odds and ends you have on hand in the house.

1 lb Pasta*, cooked
4 c fresh veggies*, chopped small
1 T Sesame seeds
3 T Olive oil, divided
2 t Salt
1/2 t Pepper
4 slices bacon, diced and cooked (optional)

Cook pasta and set aside to cool slightly while cooking veggies. Heat 1 T of olive oil in a large frying pan. Add veggies and lightly saute, you want them to be slightly underdone. Add pasta, seasoning, oil, and bacon and cook 1-2 more minutes.

Best served warm. Top with Parmesan cheese if desired

Total Cost: $3.25 - $6.25
Pasta $1.25 (Cashwise)

Bacon $1.00 (Sunmart)

*Favorite - asparagus, carrot, red pepper, bacon with cavatappi (corkscrew) pasta
