Garden Pasta Salad

My frugal tip today is to eat out of your garden. We did this as a child and still do this even today with my own family. From corn on the cob to leaf lettuce you can eat something out of the garden every day. Here is a great recipe to get you started.

Garden Pasta Salad

1 1/2 cup elbow or small shell macaroni
1 large tomato, diced
1 cup zucchini, chopped
1/3 cup bottled Italian dressing
2 tsp parsley, chopped
1/8 tsp black pepper

Boil water with a small amount of salt in a large pan. Cook pasta until tender, stirring occasionally. Drain pasta and allow to cool slightly. Place pasta, diced tomatoes, and chopped zucchini in a large serving bowl. Add dressing to moisten. Toss lightly. Add parsley and black pepper, toss lightly. Serve warm or cold.
