I am totally over wintertime. I hate being cold all the time and as a tightwad I refuse to turn up the heat. I just want it to be sunny and warm outside. I am ready for Spring. Unfortunately, Spring is a long ways away. Today’s weather was beautiful…until you went outside. It was bright and sunny and very cold. As I stared out the window I thought that I would love a nice flavorful, and refreshing spring dish. Pasta salad is the epitome of springtime fare, and I wanted some. Surprisingly I had everything I needed to make a very tasty pasta salad. After taking the pictures I threw in some tuna in a pouch and it was a wonderful lunch.

Springtime Pasta Salad
11 oz. small pasta
3 cloves garlic
handful of halved grape tomatoes
