"I made up this recipe while trying to figure out a summer pasta salad to go with our kabobs that we were grilling. I threw in a little of this and a little of that and the family went nuts! To make this healthier, use fat-free mayonnaise and wheat pasta."

Oh my gosh is this good! I made a couple minor tweaks to make this real-food friendly: I subbed 100% whole wheat pasta, used 1 can of diced tomatoes (drained very well) since tomatoes are not in season, and used home-made buttermilk ranch dressing in place of the mayo. I thought it was a tad bland with just mayo. The veggies blend together perfectly, I wouldn't leave any of them out!
