California Pasta Salad
55 mins (prep 45, cooking 10)
20 ingredients
12-14 servings
Inspired by the California Wine Tasting meetup I recently attended, I prepared an aesthetically pleasing pasta salad that was as delicious as it was beautiful. The cayenne delivers the zing, while it also marriages a bold burst of citrus infusions. Ultra healthy and light, it can be eaten warm or cold. Americans should take a hint from European and Asian cultures and start eating more savory breakfast meals, so surprise your honey with this the morning after, and you may return to the night before.
