Seafood Pasta Salad

My mom used to make this quite a bit. I've made a few of my own adjustments to make it a little more my own.

This recipe is really quick and easy, the most time consuming part of it is dicing up all the veggies, but with a food processor it can be done in no time.

Just a quick note, any pasta can be used for this, I just found that I prefer the tri-colored Rotini or shells.

1
Cook the pasta according to directions, drain and cool completely.

5
To make things easier and less to prep, I tried using frozen peas and carrots that had been thawed out. It was a good replace to chopping up carrots, just make sure it is completely thawed (if you use a microwave make sure it is cool when it goes in the salad) and you use approx 2 cups.
