Cold Spaghetti Salad

Great for Summer! This cold spaghetti salad recipe is really easy for your summer cook outs and picnics.

Goes well with other kind of pasta shapes as short penne, or fusilli. You can make it ahead of time and tastes great!

If you like simple things, yet tasty, I propose you one of my loved pasta salad because of its lightness and simplicity of ingredients.

I don't like exaggerated mixtures in pasta salads those usually hyper seasoned. So I made this recipe my reference because in summer, more than ever, there's scent of basil and the flavor of tomatoes
