Summer Pasta Salad

pasta salad I love pasta salad, that being said I do not love pasta loaded in mayo or tons of dressing, I like it to have flavor. And the easier the better, this is a super simple dish that you can use whatever you have on hand and whatever you prefer.

Pasta Salad

1 bag wacky mac (vegetable trio pasta or any pasta, I liked the look of the trio of colors) cook to package directions

1/2 red onion diced fine

3 plum tomatoes, diced

1/2 c black olives, cut in half

1/2 cup frozen peas, toss in boiling water just as pasta is done

Cook pasta and peas, drain, rinse with cold water, add vegggies, whip up dressing


1 cup mayo

1-2 T red wine vinegar

1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Mix all together and pour over pasta, mix well. Chill for a few hours or overnight. 

ENJOY! Mama Bird
