Fresh Pasta Salad!

Bruschetta does not just belong on crispy bread. We took all the classic flavors and threw them together with perfectly cooked pasta. It's the perfect barbecue treat.

Bruschetta is the perfect summer appetizer. Fresh garlicky tomatoes and tons of flavor all layered on toasted bread. We took that flavor and turned it into a delicious summery pasta salad.

Do not run the water under cold water after cooking it. That's an absolute no-no in the kitchen. This washes all the starch away from the pasta... Other than that, this sounds like it'd be tasty.
