It’s almost Game Day!  In honor of the big day we have a “super” easy recipe and also a giveaway for you from Naturally Fresh®!  Naturally Fresh® is a line of high-quality, homemade-tasting salad dressings and dips with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.  I love easy and better-for-you recipes so teaming with Naturally Fresh is a sure win (pardon the pun)!  They are giving one winning Effortless Girl samples of product for free – so let the games begin!


Many foods on store shelves today contain artificial flavors and colors that change the way the food tastes and looks, as well as preservatives that extend their shelf life. Naturally Fresh® refrigerated dressings are different. The company creates products that taste great by leaving out artificial preservatives and artificial colors or flavors.

Naturally Fresh® does not use:
        Artificial thickeners to make up texture that should come from real ingredients.
        Monosodium glutamate (MSG), an artificial flavor enhancer.
        Artificial preservatives. That’s why you’ll only find Naturally Fresh® products in the refrigerated section.
        Artificial colors or flavors.

Naturally Fresh® puts real ingredients in their products – and you can taste the difference.  I’m a big fan of the Classic Ranch and Tripp likes the Bleu Cheese, they also have Lite versions of both so you can choose what you like.

Now on to my recipe….I somehow deleted the photos (really sorry).  The recipe is Super Simple.  

Ingredients for 8 servings:

1 Box Pasta
Ranch Dressing (about 1/2 jar)
4 Carrots
4 Small Tomatoes
1 Cucumber
2 Green Onion Stalks
Salt & Pepper to taste

As you boil your favorite pasta, cut up the veggies into small pieces.  I grated the carrots and diced the rest of the vegetables.  I put everything into the bowl I’ll use for serving to make life simple and clean up a breeze.

Drain the pasta and add to the vegetable bowl.  Add your dressing choice a little at a time until the pasta is covered sufficiently to your taste.  I used about 1/2 jar.  Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper and you’re ready to play.
