Pasta Salad

IT’S SUMMER TIME! What’s a great summer dish? Pasta salad. This side dish is fantastic for a picnic in the park. I had all the ingredients to make a pasta salad, so I thought why not make some. I looked at a bunch of different recipes of pasta salad and whipped up my own version, here is what I came up with. Turned out pretty yummy. Since I did use the random ingredients I had, I ended up using deli sliced ham and shredded cheese and it worked just fine. Lets just say that is a college version of pasta salad. Below is a better version.
