Green Goddess Pasta Salad 

The kids and I are headed to friends house for a 4th of July Bash & BBQ ! I made this delicious pasta salad jam packed with veggies (shhhhh no one will know).  I used regular pasta but please fill free to use your favorite gluten free pasta! 

6-7 leaves of kale, with stems 

1 cup fresh basil 

6 garlic cloves 

2 sprigs thyme (whole) 

2 tablespoons fresh oregano 

Juice of 1 large lemon 

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (optional) 

1 cup mayo 

1/2 cup olive oil 

Pinch of salt and pepper 

  • Cook your pasta according to instructions.  Once cooked place in colander and rinse with cold water to cool down. 
  • Place everything but olive oil in food processor and pulse. 
  • Open top and scrap the sides to make sure everything is getting properly incorporated. 
  • Close top and begin to drizzle in oil. 
  • Once all the oil is mixed in stop machine and you my friend are done! 
  • Mix with pasta! 
  • You can add shredded chicken, shrimp, other veggies like cucumbers and tomatoes. Be creative!
  • This also makes a great dip!
