Southwest Pasta Salad

One thing that I dread about summer is all of the BBQs and potlucks, but not because I don’t like them. I just always feel like I never have enough good recipes to bring as a food option. This southwest pasta salad can change that though!

Southwest pasta salad that is tasty and easy to make. Feel like you need a gluten free option? Rotini gluten free pasta is a fantastic option. It tastes just like regular pasta. Don’t feel like doing a gluten free option? No worries, just stick to the recipe, and you’ll be golden! 

I love this recipe because it is warm and refreshing all at the same time. I brought this to a work function, and everyone loved it. I’m so glad they’re willing to be my guinea pigs!

Thanks to the folks at All Recipes for this delicious recipes!
