At the beginning of the year we're usually a bit more conscientious of our financial and physical well being, and these topics are often focal to our end-of-year resolutions. We don't need to invest a lot of time or deny ourselves delicious food to reach our goals. There are many dishes that only need a few ingredients to create something mouthwatering, like this tasty fresh pasta salad. This is a recipe I learned when I was very young and can be adapted to any budget and time since we can add and omit ingredients however we like. If time is the issue, try it with a delicious homemade pesto.
