For Fathers Day my darling husband requested spaghetti salad with extra peas ( from our garden) This is a wonderful cold pasta salad to have for a barbecue or summer meal. It’s so delicious with fresh veggies from the garden ( or your local market). You can use leftover spaghetti pasta for this too!
