NewBo Farmer's Market Pasta Salad

Oh my goodness, it surely has been a long time since I have blogged.  Lately, it has been crazy around here and I haven't had the time TO blog!


So, I wanted to just start off with a recipe blog.  Saturday night, I combined all of my lovely veggies from the farmer's market and decided to make a pasta salad for Sunday's lunch.  IT was so delicious, I had to just jot down my notes here!
