I love checking out other blogs on the internet and seeing what recipes that look yummy to me. This is one of those recipes. Pasta-check! Pesto-check! Well, you get the idea...I loved almost the ingredients! The original recipe from Damn Delicious had tuna instead of the seafood mix. I like tuna, but I found a great seafood mix at Trader Joe's and knew that would be a good substitution. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did :)
Seafood Pesto Pasta Salad
· 1 cup elbow pasta
· 1/2 bag frozen seafood mix (bought mine at Trader Joe’s with calamari, scallops, and shrimp- yum!)
· 1/4 cup basil pesto (can make fresh, I used a jarred pesto)
· 1 avocado, diced
· 1/4 cup sliced sun dried tomatoes in oil, drained
· 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
Boil water and cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well. Meanwhile, cook seafood in pan.
In a large bowl, combine the pasta, seafood, pesto, avocado, sun dried tomatoes and sunflower seeds.
