Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta Salad

Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta Salad is all the flavors of a cheeseburger in the form of a pasta salad. I love that you can make it ahead for an easy meal.

Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is one of my favorite easy dinners for spring and summer. I love that you can customize it to contain just what you want it to. I also love that is can be made ahead to make lunch and dinner easy.

Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta Salad

My kids love pasta salad. When I make it I often double the recipe and we eat it for lunch for several days. It makes a great easy lunch that everyone loves.

Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta Salad is a recipe I came up with recently. I wanted to make pasta salad, but I wanted something a little different.

This salad ended up being just what I wanted it to be. It was a little different than your normal pasta salad and it was delicious! This will be on the menu plan often this summer.

If you love pasta salad this is a must try! It is also easy to make gluten free with gluten free pasta.
