"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

I created this pasta salad to bring to a potluck BBQ at a friend's house. It is a perfect with fried chicken or grilled steaks. It is very popular at any function I take it to. I vary the ingredients depending on what I have in my refrigerator.
