Pasta Salad with Garlic & Chive Cheddar

When summer rolls around, I find I often need to bring sides like pasta salad or coleslaw to a picnic. This easy recipe for Italian Pasta Salad with Conebella Farm Garlic & Chive Cheddar would be a great salad to bring to your next barbecue, such as a 4th of July gathering! You could use our Garlic & Chive Cheddar, Colby Dill, Sharp Cheddar or even cheese curds! I used Italian dressing, some freshly chopped veggies and penne pasta. I’m not a fan of super cold pasta salad, so I actually serve it when the pasta has cooled to about room temperature.
