Is there a pasta shortage I don’t know about?
I know there are supply chain issues on just about everything right now, but pasta?! When I live in the farm belt of the Midwest???
Seriously, my pasta aisle has been wiped clean for about a month now. The only thing that remains is the boxed pasta made from lentils (which serve a purpose, don’t get me wrong). If you want whole wheat pasta, that’s even more elusive.
And refrigerated tortellini?
I had to settle for cheese “ravioli” for this recipe, even though I desperately wanted to use tortellini. You’ve got to take what supply chain issues throw at you, though.
I love a good, cold salad that’s made with pasta. It’s even better if you can make it a full-blown lunch salad, like this recipe. You don’t need much more to eat for lunch when you have this meal-in-one.
May the pasta flow freely in your grocery store and may the tortellini salad you eat for lunch fill you up.
