This is another recipe that I took some help from the boxed pasta salads at the grocery store. I love the flavor and I really like the fact that it makes a smaller amount so nothing goes to waste here at our house. I didn’t add the corn because I have a corn hater in the house and I used super tiny pieces of broccoli because the corn hater also hates broccoli. Crazy, I know! This recipe came from the Betty Crocker website.
