Ok, here is a recipe I'm thinking about trying... But I'm not sure about pasta with fruit, has anyone ever tried it (i know, stupid question)?

Couscous & Fruit Salad

2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 teaspoons finely chopped shallots
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 cups cooked whole-wheat couscous
1 cup chopped nectarine
1 cup mixed fresh berries, such as blueberries and raspberries
2 tablespoon toasted sliced almonds, (see Tip)

Step 1
Whisk oil, orange juice, vinegar, shallots, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add cooked couscous, nectarines, berries and almonds; gently toss to combine.

Tip: To toast sliced almonds, heat a small dry skillet over medium-low heat. Add nuts and cook, stirring, until lightly browned and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.

I have had a cold pasta salad with fruit in it before! It had Kiwi Fruit in it & it was divine!

I think that sounds great! I'll frequently put chopped apple or fresh strawberry in my quinoa-blend pasta!
