The ingredients are really easy and I’m adding a mix of colorful veggies (the Holiday Favorite) along with cranberries, nuts, and bacon.

I’m using Turkey bacon to make it light and easy and actually goes extremely well with all your Thanksgiving sides.

So matching their theory, Blue Evolution have a ‘Brand New Packaging’ with a new seaweed logo.

They have also highlighted “high in iodine and a good source of iron and magnesium” nutritious details on every Blue Evolution Pasta with Superfood Seaweed boxes.

The Process to Make Fall Pasta Salad Recipe:

The process to make the recipe is very easy and uses simple everyday ingredients.

Also, adding the Seaweed pasta makes this recipe even more nutritious n gorgeous too 🙂

We start by cooking the pasta as per package instructions (which is very similar to any regular pasta recipe)

While the pasta is cooking, roast the vegetables.

For roasting the vegetables, add them in a bowl along with olive oil.

Mix everything and add the mix vegetables to the air fryer basket or baking tray.

Air Fry for 13 minutes or bake for 13 minutes at 360F

Once the roasted veggies and pasta is ready, you need to just add and mix everything.

So, in a large bowl, add the roasted veggies, chopped onions, bacon, cranberries, pecans, and pasta.

Add feta cheese (or any other cheese you like) along with salt + pepper.

Mix everything using a large fork
