Mrs. L's nightmare dinner

Well, most of it wouldn't be a nightmare. With temps hovering around 90 and the humidity high as well, I decided to forgo the leftover spaghetti/meatballs and make a cool, refreshing pasta salad. Into the mixing bowl went chopped garden cucumber, cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, and green onions. I then added a pound of tri-colored farfalle (which had surprisingly noticeable spinach and/or tomato flavor in the red and green bow ties respectively). Splash on some reduced cal balsamic vinaigrette and you're good to go. Then, to the horror of Mrs. Elle, I threw in a bit of canned tuna to add some protein to the mix. Mr. R opted against tuna, and the tuna tasted really weird, so I might forgo it in the future too. But regardless, it is an easy and tasty summer dinner option.
