Summer is just about here…so it’s time to think about all those delicious summer time recipes we love to make! This one for Veggie Pasta Salad is one of those recipes. I first had this recipe when I was younger…I remember my sister-in-law making it and I loved it! I am the youngest of six kids so while one of my brothers was married with kids, I was just a kid myself. So once I was grown up and married as well, this is one of the recipes I had to start making for my family.
This is a great recipe to have with a hamburger on the grill. Need a great hamburger recipe? Check out our Barbecue Ranch Hamburger recipe. This one is my husband’s creation! :o)
I wrote this recipe as a portion size for a family of four. This is also a good one to take to those summer picnics and parties. If you were to do that, I would suggest doubling it. If you happen to make it for Memorial Day or Fourth of July, you might want to check out my red, white and blue M&M Kit Kat Cake recipe. If you love Kit Kat’s, M&M’s or just chocolate, you will love this cake as much as I do!
