Simple Pasta Salad with Goat Cheese

Use up all those leftover raw veggies in your fridge and spice it up with some goat cheese and your favourite dressing for a fresh, summer meal.


  • 1 box of your favourite pasta I use Catelli Smart Fusilli or Rotini
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 1 handful of baby carrots
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1/2 red pepper or other colour
  • 1 large handful of cauliflower florets
  • 10 cherry tomatoes approx.
  • Your favourite citrusy vinaigrette I like the Kraft fruit + veg line
  • Goat cheese plain or herbed


  1. Prepare pasta according to box directions; cook to al dente.
  2. Once pasta is done, drain (don't rinse!) then toss in a large bowl with a few big squirts of salad dressing. Put the bowl, covered, in the fridge.
  3. Chop up all your veg to bite-size pieces. Once that's done, add to your pasta. Add more dressing as necessary.
  4. Break apart your goat cheese and mix it all into the salad.
  5. Cover and chill at least 30min before serving.

Recipe Notes

If you don't like goat cheese, you can substitute for feta or freshly grated parmesan.
Change the veggies as you like them! Broccoli is also great in pasta salads.
