Southwestern Pasta Salad

I have been craving pasta salads, pasta salads and more pasta salads lately. We all know and love the traditional versions, so I wanted to create a southwestern twist to mine. I also love a pasta salad that packs a protein punch, so this easy-to-make recipe becomes a full, satisfying meal for myself and my family. The dressing is my “LG Homemade Ranch” recipe, which is Greek yogurt based… a healthier alternative to heavy cream sauces and provides even more protein. Enjoy!
