This southwest pasta salad is a great way to use up leftover pasta, and veggies in your fridge at the end of the week. I don't know about you, but when I make pasta I either make enough to feed a mouse, or enough to feed an army - it is so hard to find the exact right amount of pasta to make! I usually opt for the army size so that everyone at least has enough - and then I can use the leftovers in this pasta salad!
Pasta salad is one of those dishes that everyone has a favorite recipe for. It's a classic dish that has been around for what seems like forever, and everyone seems to have grown up with it made a certain way. Usually, pasta salad includes some sort of pasta with some vegetables and a sort of dressing. This southwest pasta salad is a spicy twist on the classic creamy pasta salad. It is full of all the things you know and love in a pasta salad - and then some! This is a perfect dish to bring to a barbecue gathering or potluck. I also love to make this in the summer to serve with some burgers or grilled chicken. Every time I make this, I wonder why I don't make it more frequently, it is that good!
