Kid Approved: Balsamic Penne Pasta Salad

April 18, 2010

My daughter, Leigh, begged me to make penne pasta salad that she saw a friend bring to school. She called to find out what was in it, and she made up this recipe herself for Balsamic Pasta Salad. This recipe is a breeze, and the kids absolutely loved it. Feel free to add chicken or turkey and top with fresh basil and Parmesan cheese.
