Recipe: Creamy Corn and Pea Pasta Salad

Creamy Corn and Pea Pasta Salad

It may be winter and totally cold around here but I couldn’t hold myself back from making one of my ultimate pasta salads. This salad screams summer and will brighten up your winter with just a few bites.

It’s loaded with creamy peas, corn, bacon, bell pepper and pasta cooked al dente. It’s dressed in a creamy dressing that pairs perfectly with the veggies.
