Hi my lovelies!
Yikes, Monday again? How did that happen? And unfortunately my Monday was one of those pesky “real” Mondays: up early, studied for my university exams and then, to top it off, half the things I wanted from the store were sold out.. But because whining does not help, I want to show you a yummy feel-good-dish that’s ready in no time – perfect for mondays! 😉
This dish contains all of the ingredients that may brighten my day and hopefully yours: lovely pasta, fresh, crunchy vegetables and a large portion of feta ❤
The pasta salad tastes best when eaten freshly cooked and still warm, but the leftovers can also make a yummy lunch for taking to work the next day… sounds great, right?
Spaghetti Salad with veggies, chicken and feta
makes 2-3 servings
- 125g broccoli
- 1 small zucchini
- 100g wholegrain spaghetti
- 150g chickenbreast
- 1 tbsp soysauce
- 2 tbsp apple vinegar
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 spring onions
- 100g feta
Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Wash the broccoli and cut into small florets. Wash the zucchini, cut in quarter-rounds and slice.
Once the water is boiling, add salt, break the spaghetti in half once and cook for about 10 minutes. 3-4 minutes before the spaghetti is finished, add the broccoli. Drain both together, place in a bowl and set aside.
While the pasta is cooking, heat a medium-sized pan. Cut the chicken into small pieces and sear with a little oil. Then add the zucchini and cook until they are tender. Add to the pasta.
To make the dressing stir together the soy sauce, vinegar, oil and maple syrup and pour over the spaghetti. Cut the spring onion into thin rings, crumble the feta and sprinkle both onto the salad and mix well. Serve immediately or refrigerate for later.
I like this recipe very much because it is incredibly flexible! You can switch the vegetables without any problems and adjust the spaghetti salad as your taste or mood sees fit. And the dressing is delicious ❤
Do you take packed lunches to work, university or school? Or are you more interested in seeing what surprises the canteens have up their sleeves?
Stay sweet & HAPPY COOKING!
