This is my mom’s recipe for a creamy pasta salad loaded with flavor and veggies. This recipe can be adjusted adding in your favorite vegetables. It makes enough to feed an army so feel free to half it or quarter it, it’s a very forgiving recipe. Its best made the day/night before so the flavors have time to marry. Save some leftover and throw in some tuna the next day for a fabulous quick lunch. Serve this is up at your next bbq or take it to a party, it’s always a hit.
