This is a light summer pasta salad that utilizes only a few ingredients, but is very tasty. I eat it year 'round because it's low fat and super tasty!

Greek-alicious Pasta Salad

Rating: Unrated
I was craving carbs and a Greek salad one day and that led to this wonderful creation. Greek dressing is so underrated, but in this recipe it is the star! This is a nice, light salad that showcases chick peas, radishes, cucumbers and feta cheese.

A wonderful summer salad I always take to potlucks. The salad is a combination of bow tie pasta, fresh tomatoes, crumbled bacon, and bits of lettuce in a delicious ranch dressing. Never any leftovers!

This Pasta salad is a nutritious and light summer meal or side dish. My 4 yr old loves the veggies in this. I regularly use up grilled leftovers (chicken and veggies) in this salad.

Pasta Fredda

Rating: Unrated
Cold or warm and simple pasta 'salad'. A recurrent dish in Italy during the warm/hot seasons. Best served with a light, dry white wine. Serve lukewarm or cold. The more it is allowed to sit, the more the flavors attach to the other ingredients.

An easy pasta salad bursting with flavor. It is fantastic for your next potluck. But bring a lot, it goes fast!

Summer Pasta with Tomatoes, Fresh Basil, and Bacon

Rating: Unrated
One of my favorite ways to use fresh basil and tomatoes! Please don't substitute dried basil, as it will not give the same flavor. Serve at room temperature for a summer pasta or serve warm.

Mandarin Chicken Pasta Salad

Rating: Unrated
I had this at a party and couldn't get it off my mind. It's a fruity Asian chicken salad that even my family's picky eaters enjoy. I bake my own chicken for more flavor, which adds to the prep time, but pre-cooked or canned chicken will also work just fine.

Spinach Pasta Salad

A unique salad, packed with iron! Your kids will eat spinach, as long as you don't tell them it's spinach. Popeye would have loved this!

Ranch, Bacon, and Parmesan Pasta Salad

A great side dish for the summer picnic. I made this on accident when I put some soup ingredients into the bowl instead of the stock pot. I doctored it up and added other ingredients, and voila! Use your favorite pasta shape.

Spring Sweet Pea Pasta Salad

This quick and easy salad can be served as a side dish or a main course. I suggest serving it with sliced apple, sweet gherkins, or cornichons. Nice bread and a glass of white wine wouldn't hurt either!
