Summer Pasta Salad Recipe

Tonight I had a moment in the kitchen and came up with this pasta salad recipe that I have to share. It’s so good. No, seriously – even my husband had seconds and he hates pasta salad, macaroni salad and foods that include mayo in general. I’ll stop rambling and just get to the good stuff so you can enjoy the deliciousness that is this pasta salad.
