{Pretty Pasta}

{So colorful!}
When I think of summer foods, pasta salad is one that comes to mind.
Especially as a accent to grilling out. So, when I was trying to decide what to bring to my sister's house for dinner tomorrow, I instantly thought, pasta salad!
{Mix it all together...}
What do you put in your pasta salad?

When I lived with some sorority sisters we made pasta salad A L L the time. The girls introduced me to adding cheese & pepperoni. You know, to make it healthy. Otherwise, I go with a pretty standard recipe...
{Tri-color NOODLES!}
My veggies of choice are celery, radishes, cucumbers, black olives {my fave!}, carrots, and red peppers. Then in go the pepperoni & cheese. I also boiled some eggs & added them {protein...wow, this is like a meal}. I used a Kraft Casesar Parmesan Vinagrette dressing this time & must say it's pretty tasty. Tomorrow I will add my grape tomatoes {I like them nice & fresh}, and voila! Finito!

{All packed up & ready to go.}

Now, it's still Spring Break for me, so I'm going to enjoy my wine spritzer.
That's right, I said wine spritzer.
