This past weekend, our family had a big family BBQ at my house. I wanted to make a pasta salad, since everyone seems to love them. I had to feed at least 14 people so I adapted a recipe I always use. There wasn't a veggie or pasta morsel left. sadly they all ate it before I could snag a picture, lol. Oh well, next time!
