Italian Pasta Salad {Giveaway}

salad-2

In college I use to have this wildy entertaining friend. She had the best stories of anyone I’ve ever met, and I was so drawn to her, wanting to share in her life. Oh, the stories she told, it was almost too good to be true. Unfortunately, those stories were too good to be true. It turned out she liked to make stuff up, alot.

But it didn’t matter. We became great friends, despite her imperfections. You have all different type of friends in your life. She was a seasonal friend, and I’m so grateful to have had her in my life, even though time, work and moving have made us grow apart. I think about her every time I make this pasta salad, a recipe that she taught me years ago.

Since Dreamfields Pasta is hosting their 3rd Annual Pastapalooza Pasta Salad Celebration, I thought it would be a great time to share this recipe. Dreamfields asked a few of us bloggers to create a pasta salad recipe with international flair. Dreamfields Pasta is a delicious all-natural pasta with 5g of fiber, only 5g of digestible carbohydrates per serving and a very low glycemic index. Perfect for us dieters that are attempting low carb diets. This treat isn’t nearly as bad as regular pasta.
