Hey everyone…sorry I haven’t been updating lately. I do have some really great recipes to share. Today i’ll share with you a simple and delicious recipe that you will make over and over again. It is perfect for this time of the year as it features tomatoes! I have to thank Todd’s Dad for sharing this recipe with me. Todd’s Dad calls this a pasta salad…however it is not your typical pasta salad…it is better! You can enjoy this pasta dish at room temperature or warm…I prefer it at room temperature.
