Yummy Seafood Pasta Salad

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 10 mins

This is sort of a concoction from several recipes I use, super easy and based off the recipe my mother made for us as kids. Pretty kid friendly, at least in our house, and is always great leftover. Can substitute cooked shrimp to cut down on prep time. Can be served warm or chilled, but we prefer it warm.
