Mouth-Watering Pasta Salad

At our house, pasta salads are a side-dish staple, especially with our summer meals. Instead of buying premade pasta salads from the store, I like to make my own using fresh ingredients from Hiland Dairy. Here’s the recipe for one of my family’s favorites: Creamy Cheddar Cheese Pasta Salad.
