READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by kleigh83

A great non mayo pasta salad that's a little more posh than the norm. Especially nice if you are a fan of sun-dried tomatoes and fresh mozzarella.

Just a little too much sundried tomatoes. I would use 1/4 to 1/3 cup and maybe a little more vinegar. I took it to our family 4th of July cookout and it was liked by some and not by others. I will tweak it some the next time, because I do love sundried tomatoes. Carole
