Halfway Homemade: Rainbow Pasta Salad

Rainbow Pasta Salad Recipe : www.abeautifulmess.comMmm… pasta salad is one of my favorite potluck foods. It’s perfect for those Sunday afternoon lunches with friends and family. As an added bonus, it’s one of the easiest foods to whip up in just 20 minutes. And it stays good in the fridge for a few days. I found this colorful pasta at a local shop and knew it would make the perfect “halfway homemade” side dish. Here’s the recipe:
