Clean out the Cupboard Pasta Salad

My aunt made this a few nights ago when we had dinner at my apartment and it was delicious! She just throws things together at the last minute and they always turn out, its ridiculous! But this is a great and easy pasta salad to make to help you clean out those remaining items in your kitchen cupboards and fridge.

Ingredients:
2 cups of uncooked pasta, whatever is in the cupboards (rotini, orzo, bowtie, etc)
1 cucumber, diced
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese broken into pieces (or you can use feta or blu cheese, or whatever you have in the fridge)
1 large tomato diced.

Dressing:
2 T of balsamic vinegar
3-4T of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and pepper to taste
dried herb of choice (Parsley, Oregano, Basil)
1/2 T of honey

Instructions:
Cook pasta and prepare vegetables, mix dressing ingredients and combine them in a bowl, toss lightly, chill for 30 minutes, then serve

Easy and delicious, and a great way to get rid of whatever you might have a little left of in the cupboards before it goes bad!
