Italian Summer Pasta Salad

Do you know the dress code at a Pasta Salad Convention? Usually, it's a bowtie!

This Italian Summer Pasta Salad had our mouths watering with every bite. The contrast of salty, acidic, crunchy, and sweet just makes you want to serve yourself bowl after bowl until it is all gone. Throw in the veggies you have on hand in the fridge. We added in bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and baby spinach as well as some chickpeas we had around for extra protein. It's a great dish to have out on the patio or by the pool, and will keep everyone happy!
