Picnic Pasta from
Babbling Brook Inn

Recipes for Picinics

Get out the checkered tablecloth, some wine, and invite a special friend or two to a picnic. The following recipe presents well and is very tasty!


  • 1/2 lb. pasta shells, cooked & drained
  • 1 cup turkey ham (or reg. ham), cut in strips
  • One 11-oz. can mandarin oranges
  • 3 green onions
  • chopped 1/2 green pepper
  • sliced thinly 1/2 red pepper
  • sliced thinly 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup toasted walnut pieces
  • Dressing: 3 Tbsp B&B Liqueur (how appropriate!)
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp fresh pesto
  • 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp tarragon
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground white pepper

Mix dressing in a bowl with wire whip. Pour over pasta and marinate overnight. Mix in other ingredients just before serving. Mound on chilled plate with greens at home, or pack in a picnic container and put salad greens in separate container or plastic bag and assemble on site.

Colorful and very tasty. Crusty French bread and cold chilled Chardonnay - great accompaniments.
