A great tasting pasta salad that goes great as a side dish with almost anything. I like to make it to take to picnics and potlucks. It also makes a great just anytime snack. Even my kids love this one. Please Enjoy!

This recipe also taste great without the imitation crabmeat..... It makes a great vegetarian pasta salad aswell just replace the imitation crabmeat with chickpeas....
