Conner's Birthday Pasta Salad

Rated as 4.33 out of 5 Stars

"I needed a quick and easy side dish to take to our friend's house for their son's birthday. This dish needed to be something that would be able to be outside and be pretty, so this is what I came up with. The variety of ingredients all tied together with the salad dressing was perfect, so much so that I took home an empty bowl!"

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Make sure to let this salad sit for at least 2 hours for maximum flavor! It is also great for picnics since it gets even better if allowed to come to room temperature.

This is an exellent go-to recipe for pasta salad. I made this almost every week during the summer months.

I made this dish for work and a family gathering and they loved it. The sausage and olives in with the cheese taste so good

great tasting and very easy--my kind of dish! I did not add the garbanzo beans or green olives b/c i don't care for either one, but still it is delish.
