CLASSIC PASTA SALAD

Pasta Salad is a classic dish that we see a lot in the warmer months at BBQs and get togethers. They’re a great way to get a lot of wonderful flavors in one dish! I love a good pasta salad, so I thought I’d start with a classic version and throughout the summer do a couple different takes. Enjoy!
