Pasta salad its so versatile you could add whatever you like to it like veggies, meat or fish and still make it into a fulfilling meal that everyone will like and even your picky eaters. I like making it and storing in the fridge for the days I do not have time to cook. This is easy to re-heat or eat cold. It could be serve with any meat or fish of your preference if not just eating it alone its great. Here is my version I had been doing for a long time and its fast so if you are not a cook or do not like to waste to much time in the kitchen this its your recipe. If you a mom with a small amount of time and want something healthy and tasty this its the recipe for you and your family.
