Christmas Pasta Salad

December 8, 2015 by Jenny Melrose

As I’ve gotten older I’ve come to realize that meals that are quick and easy as well as easy to transport from one holiday gathering to the next is important.  Our Christmas Pasta Salad is sprinkled with the colors of the holiday and the fresh vegetables of the season.  Plus, it transports like a charm so it’s a win-win.

In case you haven’t noticed yet, my girls love pasta.  They would eat it seven days of the week if I allowed it.  I do my best to incorporate fresh vegetables and fun pasta shapes into my Christmas Pasta Salad.  This pasta salad was the perfect easy lunch idea for Riley’s 6th birthday party last weekend.

My favorite part was definitely the Reynold’s Disposable Carrier Kit.  It made clean up super easy and I was able to transport it without worrying if it would spill or leak.

Plus, the carrying case made it drop proof.  Once we were done I was able to throw the top back on the tray and pop it back into the refrigerator.  So simple.  Reynold’s is offering a coupon right now that you can grab HERE to save on every type of Reynold’s bakeware.
