Pearl Pasta Salad
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
I thought it was good. I had never used this type of pasta before so I was intrigued to try it. The pesto I used had plenty of olive oil so I didn't use the 1/4 cup and I added a bit more salt than the recipe calls for.
I've made the recipe many times for potlucks and it's always a hit. I've made it with both the Acini de Pepe and with Orzo. I also add a bit of Italian Seasoning to liven up the flavors.
I liked this salad but my family thought it was just OK. One didn't care for the corn, but I think the others were just not used to the acini de pepe pasta texture and size.I'd recommend making this at least a day ahead of time to let the flavors blend together. It was much better the second day.
