Summer pasta salads are an emerging tradition in my house. Between dealing with a major heat wave and family members on different schedules, cooking dinner in the oven for a long period of time each night just isn’t practical. A quick summer pasta dinner is an easy way to incorporate filling pasta, fresh veggies, meat and other ingredients to make a healthy and satisfying meal. I’ve rounded up a few amazing pasta recipes from AllFreeCopycatRecipes.com that are great for sharing with family and friends. If you like what you see, try it out yourself and post a photo of your creation on the All Free Copycat Recipes Facebook page. Mix it up, make it fun and try something new!
