Simple Italian Sausage Pasta Salad Recipe

Helllllloooo foodie friends! Did anyone else feel like Monday was more hectic than normal? I just started a temporary position at work that has me working Downtown Portland, and let me tell you, it's  literally like Aladdin: a whole new world. I'm a simple boy, I grew up in a small suburb (like less than 10,000 people), and I like things that are little bit slower.

Because it was so crazy, I just needed something simple for dinner. While riding home on the WES I decided a pasta salad would be the perfect easy meal for dinner, and I knew exactly what I was going to put in it! This recipe takes next to no effort (aka perfect weeknight at home dinner) and is filling, tasty and full of flavor.


•  4 Italian bratwursts
•  6 eggs, hard boiled
•  1 packet Italian Seasoning
•  1 cup cheddar cheese, cubed
•  3 cups cooked rotini pasta
•  1/2 cup mayonnaise
•  1 tbsp mustard
•  2 tspn balsamic vinegar

D I R E C T I O N S 

Start by boiling the rotini pasta in pan and cooking the bratwursts. While they're going, in a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, mustard and seasoning packet.

Peel hard boiled eggs and slice. I have to point this tool to you guys right now. It's genuinely one of my favorite kitchen gadgets, and we've had it forever! I would be lost without it.

Once the pasta is done cooking, put it in a large bowl and toss with the balsamic vinegar and a pinch of ground pepper.

In the bowl add in eggs and mayo seasoning mix.

Toss in the cheese and chopped up pieces of the bratwurst. Cool in fridge for an hour.

And it's ready to enjoy!!

Hopefully you find this recipe helpful when looking for something simple to make for dinner this week. Pastas are a great go-to when looking for a quick meal.
