Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

A nice choice for a summer cookout or picnic, this pasta salad can be made up to a day ahead for convenience. My pasta choice for this is ditalini, a small pasta often used in soups (this can be hard to locate but Barilla sells a one pound box.) Or substitute your own small pasta FAV such as elbows or shells.

Three ingredients - this recipe is way easy! Of course I might add and/or embellish with all kinds of ingredients and garnishes we use today, but for the…
