Salad Stuffed Shells

I love pasta salad.  But I also love veggies and recognise their importance. So, when I saw an image of salad stuffed shells on Pinterest (are you following us yet?), I knew I had to try it.  I got a few strange looks from my family—I’m not going to lie, it does seem strange—but it was so delicious that I didn’t care.

Full disclosure:  I finished off the leftovers while writing this post!

I kept the toppings separate so we could mix and match, but you could easily combine them all initially to make the “filling.”  Here, I just used some simple cherry tomatoes.

I used Italian dressing, but feel free to grab your favourite!  I’m sure a creamy dressing would go beautifully with the pasta shells.
