Gluten-Free Sweet Pea Pasta Salad


It's hard to believe Labor Day is right around the corner! I've been looking for a healthy gluten-free pasta salad to serve at my family BBQ this Labor Day and I've created this tasty dish that is sure to please the kids and adults, too.

Believe me, no one will know it's gluten-free. They'll be coming around asking for seconds!
