Colorful Pasta Salad

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for light colorful dishes that can be made ahead of time and eaten hot or cold. For me this is my pasta salad. It is bursting with flavor, and the lemon juice adds just the right amount of tank. You can use your favorite vegetables to make this recipe your own. Simple toss your favorite veggies in a skillet with oil and spices. Add lemon juice to make a dressing right in the pot and fold it into some cooked pasta. It’s that simple. But if you need a list of suggested ingredients, here’s mine:
