Pasta salad is easy to make on Sunday and have ready to go in the fridge all week long. Try this twist with red peppers for a tasty way to change things up!
With school back underway, I love to have pasta salad or other hearty salads that I can make on Sunday and have ready to go in the fridge all week long. These types of dishes hold up really well in the lunch box (pictured below) and are great to grab and go for adult/work lunches as well. We’re big fans of pesto in our house, so this twist with red peppers felt like a great way to switch things up!

What could be a possible replacement for the almonds?
Pine nuts or walnuts!
Should the almonds have the skins removed?
Perfect office lunch ! Thank you !
You are welcome!
I’ve had a hard time finding whole wheat orzo. Even shopping online seems to yield only very expensive options. Could you provide a brand and where we buy it? Thanks!
Delallo sells it here in CA at Sprouts
There are some options on Amazon or you could substitute with a different (small) pasta if you’d like.
