This pasta salad reminds me of the best pimento cheese I ever had. IMy friends and family are always asking me to make pasta salad. I normally make a vinaigrette for my pasta salad, not this time! I decided to fuse my beloved pimento cheese with pasta and top it off with some grilled chicken. This salad is quick, simple, easy and is simply delcious. I will make this often. I hope that you will give it a try. Cooking with Passion, sw :)
