So Many Reasons to Celebrate

This pasta recipe is usually reserved for celebrations, you know, baptisms, birthdays, graduations, wedding showers, Independence Day...but there were so many things to celebrate yesterday.
  1. The Hawks are headed to the Final Four
  2. Sunday, March 25 2012, 6:30 pm 74 degrees, Kansas
  3. Spring Break 2012 is over and the kids are headed back to school!
  4. The great lakehouse renovation is essentially complete
  5. Green grass, blooming dogwoods, blooming redbuds
There are more I'm sure, but here is the recipe in case you have your own reasons for celebrating.

Bowtie Pasta

1/2 cup olive oil                                          1 Tablespoon parsley
3/4 cup sugar                                              1 Tablespoon (or more) dill
3/4 cup white vinegar                                 1 Tablespoon Accent
2 Tablespoons yellow mustard                   1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon garlic salt

Whisk ingredients together and set aside

1 16 oz. package bowtie pasta cooked        1 green pepper chopped
1 cucumber  chopped                                  1 or 2 tomatoes chopped
1 red onion chopped                                    1 yellow pepper chopped
1 red pepper chopped                                  2 cups chopped carrots

You can add any vegetables you like.  I like radishes but usually have to leave them out for pickier eaters.  Add all ingredients together and chill.  It's best on day 2 or 3!
