Zesty Italian Pasta Salad
I love how simple this garden pasta salad is to make! It is the perfect dish to take for family meals!
One thing I love about the pasta salad is that you can change the vegetables and never have the same dish.
Examples of extra items you could add to this dish are broccoli, cucumbers, black olives, even pepperoni!
The dish I prepared is just a basic side dish. Feel free to add more items to your salad.Print
