Giada's Creamy Pasta Salad

For this creamy pasta salad, I turned to classic flavors that you might find in a traditional potato salad, or even an old-school macaroni salad. I love the creamy element, and all of the fresh herbs that give it a refreshing brightness. I made it feel a little more Italian with finely diced fennel and capers, which bump up the flavor another notch. This creamy pasta salad is perfect for picnics, potlucks, or even a tasty dish to meal-prep at the beginning of the week for summery lunches!

To round out a perfect potluck meal, serve this alongside my rosemary garlic chicken burgers and caprese salad!

    Love the herbaceous flavor here combined with the fennel. Also the acid from the capers! Good textures as well with the fennel and the celery. The only thing I changed was I used veganaise! Love this thank you.
