Baja Bowtie Pasta

baja bowtie pasta


See I told you I had lots of pasta in my pantry. You are going to love this recipe as well though. It’s a great salad to take to all the summer BBQ’s you are hoping to attend or throw yourself this summer.

My husband’s mom has Sunday dinner at her house a lot. The fun part is all of his brothers except one that lives 1 ½ away come to eat dinner. It’s so fun that have lots of cousins around for my kids to grow up with now. I am so glad that we got to move back to Wyoming.

I took this pasta salad to Sunday dinner this last Sunday, and everyone loved it. I love when I take a dish to a dinner, and it’s almost completely gone when you take your bowl home. Makes a cook feel wonderful, don’t you think?? Hope you enjoy this great pasta salad. Let me know what you think about it in the comments below. Eat up!!
