Confetti Pasta Salad

sherry fry


I was given a version of this salad in the 80's by a woman I worked with. I have taken it to many get togethers and everyone inquires about the recipe. It is best is made the day before so that the flavors meld together. You can add items or delete any of the "added" items you would like. The original recipe called for black olives but I have found most people don't like them so I put in green olives. I also omit the green pepper in my version because "we don't get along".
