Pasta Salad


I just love this Pasta Salad. You can add so many different food ingredients making it different every time, this is my favorite way. It takes a little time to prepare, however it is perfect for any type of get together or meal. Prepare the salad the day before you need it and leave the Italian dressing out until about an hour before you serve it.
