During the summer months we love a meal of pasta salad. It can be made ahead of time (like in the morning when the kitchen is cooler) and put in the refrigerator. Our recipe is pretty simple and easy to adjust to individual tastes. We use the following ingredients in varying amounts (depending on how much we have) in ours.
cooked spaghetti noodles
halved cherry tomatoes
shredded cheddar cheese
We simply mix these ingredients, chill, and enjoy.
