Spicy Pasta Salad

Pasta Salad in a Bowl

We love simple recipes that can be spiced up with a bit of hot sauce. Adding hot sauce to pasta salad adds a delicious kick to the refreshing staple. Our favorite in this recipe is Hot Ginger, because of the spicy, sweet zing it has, but all three of our Nashville Hot Sauces make a delicious final product here!

Ingredients:
16 oz rotini pasta
2 cups cherry tomatoes diced
3 bell peppers (any colors) diced
