Recipe by Printessa

A great tasting pasta salad that goes great as a side dish with almost anything. I like to make it to take to picnics and potlucks. It also makes a great just anytime snack. Even my kids love this one. Enjoy!

This was very good. There are so many different flavors! I think next time I'll increase the imitation crabmeat and add an extra hard-boiled egg. This will be my next dish to take to a potluck. Thanks for posting!
