This whole wheat pasta salad with pesto, asparagus and roasted tomatoes is proof that the only things you need for a completely delicious (and really easy) pasta salad are a few trusty mix-ins, like a jar of your favorite pesto, marinated artichokes, salty prosciutto, and a seasonal veggie or two.

Have you ever been someone, or met someone, who describes their life in seasons? And by seasons, I mean, a season that lasts as long as a relationship, or while your kids are little, a season of grieving, growing…or for me, the many, many seasons of terrible, horrible, no good, very bad clothing.
When I traveled to Portland recently with my friend Kristen, she and I were talking about these seasons, and in a more literal way, she was saying how sad it is for her to know that she only has 4 summers left before her son heads off to college.
4 summers. For her, remembering that her summers are numbered makes each one count, and in a way, she reminded me that my summers are numbered, too. Because they are.
