Red, White & Blue Cheese Pasta Salad

Jun 16 2015 Liz Call

 One of my favorite things to make for a BBQ is pasta salad.  I love that you can add pretty much anything to pasta and make it taste delicious.  Plus they are cool and refreshing on hot AZ summer days.  🙂  I thought it would be fun to put together a fun pasta salad perfect for 4th of July.  This red, white and blue cheese pasta salad will be a perfect side dish for your 4th of July parties and BBQs.

You don’t have to be a blue cheese lover to enjoy this pasta salad.  The flavor of the blue cheese isn’t too over powering and the little bit of fresh basil compliments this salad really well.

  4. Once pasta is done, rinse with cool water and drain.
  5. Add cooled pasta, tomatoes, basil, blue cheese, salt, pepper and sugar to a large bowl.
  6. Pour 1/2 bottle of dressing over pasta and gently mix everything together.
  7. The pasta will soak up a lot of the dressing.
  8. I like to make it the day before and then add a little more dressing right before serving.
