Butterflies and Rainbows Pasta Salad
Have Fun With Lunch
This dish is the centerpiece of my daughter Bella's favorite lunch box meal. It gets its name from the red, orange, green and yellow vegetables it contains along with the butterfly-shaped pasta. Bella likes the challenge of getting every color onto each spoonful. Serve with a blueberry yogurt so you get the full color spectrum.
Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package. Drain, toss with 1 teaspoon of oil to prevent sticking, and cool.
In a large bowl, toss together the cooled pasta, corn, Edamame, red pepper, and carrots. Drizzle with the remaining oil and toss to coat. Add the parmesan cheese and salt and toss to combine. Season with more salt to taste.
