Tomato Green Bean Pasta salad comes together for a great week night dinner. It also makes a great light lunch with a side of fruit and yogurt. I usually grill up meat and pair it with this wonderful side.
I like to add additional vegetables such as peppers and carrots. I especially like this recipe with olives. A lot of other vegetables work in this side such as asparagus, zucchini, yellow squash, broccoli, peppers, etc. This side is wonderful with boiled, grilled, roasted or raw vegetables.

I’ve used these Tupperware bowls for years and LOVE them. I’m not sure why they are not rated that high on Amazon but they are the perfect size and the lid fits super snug so I feel comfortable traveling with my favorite pot luck dishes in the car.

I do not include salt and pepper because I assume it is already in your pantry. There is a savings of about $5.86 if you have a stocked pantry.
