This is one I make quite often, an easy, pretty quick summer pasta salad. I almost always serve it with bread of some sort, usually either biscuits or sourdough bread, tonight I served it with cornbread. This is a recipe that is so easy to expand to serve more as needed.
Summer Pasta Salad
8 oz. pasta
whatever other raw veggie you have around
Cook the pasta according to the directions. Use something big, like bow ties. Cut the tomato and pepper into chunks, cut the cucumber in half then slice, slice the carrots. Slice the smoked sausage; cook in a skillet until warm and crispy on the edges. When the pasta is done, run it under cool water. Toss everything together. Enjoy!
