Our family loves pasta.
It’s so versatile that we can always find a fun new recipe to try. Whether we’re in the mood for a hearty, cream-based pasta recipe for dinner or a light pasta with veggies for lunch, the options are endless.
Now that the weather has gotten so much warmer, I’ve found myself enjoying more pasta salads. I’ll make a large recipe for the family to enjoy for dinner and then save the leftovers for lunches over the next day or two.
I recently made an awesome Angel Hair Garden Pasta Salad with Dreamfields Pasta. It was a huge hit with the family, so I wanted to share it with you too.
