Quick, easy and delicious pasta salad

Hi! How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? Mine was great. :) Filled with a lot of family, food and fun. Just the way I like it! Normally at this time Micheal and I would be power napping and then heading out to Black Friday shop. This year, we decided to sleep through it. As much as I l-o-v-e Black Friday, I am excited to not be a total zombie tomorrow (usually we get home right as the girls are waking up for the day..Ah!). :)

Today I want to share with you my go to recipe. Everyone has one, I think. You know.. That recipe that you make for every get together you go to, because everyone loves it. This pasta salad is that, for me.

I got this recipe from my Aunt Karen. She brought it for Thanksgiving one year and I swear to you, it was pretty much the only thing I ate! Ha! It was soo good! I the recipe. She gave it to me and since I have been bringing it for Thanksgiving and every baby shower, Birthday party, etc. I attend. :)

Yesterday (Thanksgiving), I took Abby through the line of food to make her a plate. After asking her what she wanted on her plate, she says “Just the stuff we brought” HA! All she wanted was the pasta salad!
