Erin's Cold Pasta Salad

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by Noni Suzanne

This is a super easy, yet yummy cold pasta salad. It's great as a side-dish or for a potluck and best when made a day ahead, although not a must so long as you give it some time in the refrigerator for the flavors to absorb. Measurements are approximate and can be experimented really can't mess this one up!

We loved this salad. I did not have any Bernstein's Italian dressing so I used Kraft Zesty Italian calorie wise instead. I did not have any artichokes on hand so I left them out but I think they would be wonderful in this dish. Thanks for the quick and tasty salad recipe.
