    About this recipe: A nice summertime pasta salad that you can serve for a light supper or take on a picnic. Top with sunflower seeds or toasted almonds for a nice crunch. Note: the amounts here are estimates, as I rarely measure when I make this salad, so feel free to add a bit more or less of whatever you wish.
