Pasta Salad recipe and Tasty Tuesday Linky

simple to make pasta salad for busy nights

During the Summer season we love a pasta salad. It’s my go to meal when I forget to set anything out for dinner. Well, that and bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches, they are so yummy too! So I made this pasta salad dish to share with you. It was so simple and so easy to make. I dare say it’s even as easy as a box mix! You won’t regret making this one.

 We add the select dressing to the pasta salad after we all get our own bowl. That keeps it original to the person who made their own pasta salad. The reason we started doing this was because the pasta salad just soaked up the dressing and you couldn’t taste it. If you wait and add the dressing right before you eat it you are saving a lot of calories and fat. And you get that nice bite of taste. How do you make your pasta salad?

  1. Cool recipe! I like how you cooked the sausage along with the pasta, it’s easier and probably tastier. I keep my pasta salad simple, with canned corn and peas, some cubed cheese, and cherry tomatoes if they’re around. And mayonnaise for the dressing 🙂

  2. Thanks for bringing this recipe by The Yuck Stops Here link party! I have also linked up with you and visited some of your guests. Thanks for hosting! HUGS
