Grilled Vegetable and Pasta Salad

This pasta salad is delicious. Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod and I made this salad for our Good Things Utah segment, and since then it’s become a family favorite for us. It’s inexpensive and easy to plan around by what’s in season.

Tips: Pick your vegetables around what is in season and on sale. You could save yourself up to 40%! This meal is great as a warm pasta during the summer, and a cold pasta during the summer. Grill your veggies inside or outside depending on the weather. Also, did you know that Whole Foods Market will cut just the amount of cheese you need? Another way that Whole Foods can save you money on your food bill!
