Last nights dinner was ridiculous. To tell the truth, it was no Beef Wellington, but for 387 calories, it was robust and ridiculously satisfying.
Pasta Salad with Tomatoes and Blue Cheese
3 Tbl. EVOO
2 tsp. cider vinegar
2 large garlic cloves, chopped
2 tsp. chopped fresh marjoram
1 tsp. salt
a pinch of red pepper flakes
3/4 lb. cherry tomatoes
1 lb. farfalle pasta
1 cup baby arugula
2 oz. crumbled blue cheese (about 1/2 cup...I used more because we love the stinky stuff)
fresh ground black pepper to taste
This was just about the easiest thing in the world to make.
First mix up the vinaigrette by whisking together the oil, vinegar, garlic, marjoram, salt and pepper flakes.
Next cut your cherry tomatoes in half.
Add the cut tomatoes to your vinaigrette and toss.
cooled to at least room temperature add the arugula and blue cheese.
Top with freshly ground black pepper and enjoy!
