Fast Fancy Finals Food: Pesto Pasta Salad

Every year as finals roll around I find that I have to sacrifice delicious food to get my study on! So, I have developed some fast but fancy finals food that takes less time but I still love eating! This pesto pasta salad tastes like summer- which is just the delicious motivation I needed to get through finals.


  • Pasta
  • Pesto
  • Craisins
  • Goat Cheese, Mozzarella, Parmesan


Pick a pasta, and make it as directed. Strain pasta and then put it back in the pot. Mix in pesto (mine defrosted from when I made it last summer- ingredients below), a handful of craisins, crumbled goat cheese, and mozzarella. Stir pasta until cheese is melted, and pour it in the bowl (sprinkle parmesan to taste).

Pesto Ingredients:

  • 4 cups fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 2-4 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Enjoy- And Good luck with finals!!
