Pesto Pasta Salad

5-ingredient Aug 12, 2021

My family loves a good pesto pasta salad as a side to any main meal.  If you have ever been to my house for dinner, or I've brought food to yours, then you have probably had a pesto pasta salad.  Its easy to make and super delicious.  Experiment with what you add.  Other options include chopped tomatoes, broccoli, peas or a colour mix of peppers to add lots of colour.  Veggies can be cooked or raw for a different taste and texture. Add some chicken to make it a meal.  So many options, but always so delicious!
