Leftover Pasta with CSA Veggies | Feed Your Skull

There’s something refreshing about a cold pasta salad especially during the summer. I threw today’s quick inspiration together with some leftover pasta for a tasty veg-filled option that didn’t require much forethought.

When I boil noodles I usually like to make a bit extra. They come in handy for quick meal prep the next day. I store them in the fridge, sometimes with a spritz of olive oil to keep from sticking together.

The amount of noodles I use depends on how hungry I am, if I’ve worked out or plan to, or by how many veggies I have on hand.

You feel me??


  • 2 cups of leftover pasta
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 – whole zucchini, chopped and steamed or thinly sliced/shredded and raw
  • 1/4-1/2 cucumber, chopped
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 3 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • approximately 1 tablespoon of your favorite dressing, I used Drew’s Italian Dressing
  • Nutritional yeast to taste aka A LOT 😉
  • salt and pepper to taste if needed

Other tasty additions or substitutions:

  • A little homemade sauerkraut
  • Kalamata or Spanish olives
  • Raw or steamed broccoli
  • Shredded carrot
  • Pine nuts or pumpkin seeds
  • Mixed freezer veggies (corn, peas, carrot/corn/pea)
  • Peppers
  • Dill
  • Cilantro
  • Thinly sliced raw greens (arugula, Swiss chard, kale, romaine, etc)
