I got some bowtie pasta salad from the deli. Should have sampled it first…not good. Trying not to be wasteful, I tried this and it made the deli concoction salvagable.
I dumped it on top of a bed of field greens then covered it with house vinaigrette. The greens flavor varieties, along with the bold dressing (since the pasta was supposedly in a vinaigrette too) were just enough to save the pasta dish from the circular file & added a little starch for longevity. Win-win.
