The Best Deviled Eggs Pasta Salad

Did you know that you can have pasta for salad? Oh yes, you can! I came across this recipe of Deviled Eggs Pasta Salad and was eager to try it. I just added a few veggies that I had in stock to make it into a more nutritious and complete meal. This pasta salad recipe will be perfect for your after-Christmas celebration as it is so easy to prepare. What’s great is that you can prepare extra eggs as you prepare your Deviled Eggs appetizer  and reserve some of the hardboiled eggs for your pasta the next day.

What I Love About this Pasta Salad

The recipe calls for some ingredients that may not easily be available so I substituted some of it. For example, I did not have Gemelli pasta so I used the curly pasta I had in stock. I also don’t have fennels so I just used parsley. For better flavor and a complete meal, I also added some tuna flakes, asparagus, and tomatoes.

Is Pasta Healthy or Unhealthy?

If you’re trying to watch your diet like me, I know you also have your misgivings about pasta. Pasta is a form of carbs so skipping rice but eating pasta can be the same thing. So, I did my research to determine if pasta is unhealthy or not.

I learned that if you want to opt for healthier pasta, you can choose whole grain pasta. Whole grain pasta is higher in fiber yet lower in calories. On the other hand, enriched pasta may be higher in B vitamins and iron.

In addition, pasta may contain gluten. So if you’re allergic to gluten or want to avoid gluten, just opt for gluten-free food. To know more about the nutritional effects of pasta, you can read this article on Healthline.
