Honey Dijon Pasta Salad
Serves 4
Leftovers from the weekly Sunday roast dinner often provide sliced roast beef, ham or turkey to serve for lunch or even a quick dinner on a busy Monday at our house. Mondays are sometimes a bit of a food free for all around here. With the scattered timing all the after school and early evening activities the kids are involved in a sit down hot meal is not always possible. That's when a quickly put together pasta salad is most appreciated as fuel-to-go.
