Weekly Recipe #114: Penne Pasta Salad

By Rylee Ahnen, University of Minnesota Nutrition Major

It’s here! Spring is finally here! Let the rejoicing commence! I don’t know about anyone else, but in celebration of this lovely weather my friends are going to pack a picnic lunch this weekend and go to Lake Harriet. One of the things that we’ll be bringing is one of my favorite picnic foods, and it’s a real snap to make. I hope you enjoy it as much as my friends and I do. (And that you get a chance to get outside, too!)
