pasta circles.! (transformed into a wonderful salad.)

So I found these pasta circles at Trader Joes and HAD to do something with them. Even though it's only pasta, I couldn't exactly wrap my mind its cheerio shape.

My first thought was to string them on a licorice rope just like all the cheerio and fruitloop shaped edibles have once experienced.. or maybe i could cut them all in half so they look atleast a little bit like normal macaroni... no, that would take too long... so instead I insisted on deceiving my mind and telling myself that it is only pasta...
it's only pasta...
it's only pasta...

... no.
it's not only pasta. its circles. im cooking circles.
who cooks circles?
I must be loosing my mind!? My sister is going to call me up and ask what i cooked today...
"I cooked circles ..."




Either way... atleast I cooked my circles with spinach and mushrooms sautéed in garlic infused olive oil and tossed with toasted pine nuts! Ill admit it was a well rounded dish (HA! okay... not funny) but hey, it was Healthy && Delicious!
Want recipe? let me know!
