Tuscan Pasta Salad

Don’t stress, I got you covered. When I take this salad to a pot luck, I always have people asking me for the recipe. When I give them the recipe, they are usually shocked at how simple it is. Then again, who doesn’t love a recipe that is easy to make but tastes like you slaved all day in the kitchen making it?
