On the Menu: Seafood Pasta Salad

There are just some seafood dishes that are perfect for summer, and among my favorites: Seafood Pasta Salad. Really, this super-easy dish is a boon for entertaining. Just make ahead and chill.


This is one of those fabulous interchangeable entrees that is just as delectable with crab meat as it is with shrimp (but, I really LOVE the shrimp). The best news is my husband is a pasta salad kind of guy. So, it's a win-win.

SEAFOOD PASTA SALAD RECIPE

Ingredients:
1 (16 oz) package of pasta (I like bow tie, but you decide the shape you prefer)

1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
1/4 cup Italian dressing
