I guess I can’t speak for all Texans, but my friends and I enjoy each other’s company at every get-together we have. Each family is responsible for one dish and we have a great time eating, playing games, catching up and eating some more! One of my favorite things to bring to our functions is pasta salad.
Not only is Skinner Texas Shape pasta fun, it’s also easy to make, budget-friendly and delicious. You can’t have a great pasta salad without a mouthwatering base ingredient! Now, I’ve heard that antipasto pasta salad shouldn’t contain pasta. But really, what’s pasta salad without pasta?! And what’s a friendly get together without the friendliest pasta? Am I right?
