Grilled Vegetable Pasta Salad

Grilled vegetable pasta salad is packed with veggies, had loads of fresh basil and parmesan cheese, and is topped with a tangy Northern Italian dressing. Customize it with your favorite summer vegetables, or add some rotisserie chicken to make this into a meal.

Grilled Vegetable Pasta Salad

 One of my favorite summer dishes, ever, is pasta salads. Ever. It is the best part of a BBQ, in my opinion, and I’m always looking for new flavor combinations.

Some of my favorites have been my Zesty Italian pasta salad, my BLT Bucatini pasta salad, my Italian Sausage Pasta Salad with Marinated Mushrooms and Olives, and my Dilly Tuna Pasta Salad.

Grilled Vegetable Pasta Salad

That’s a lot of veggies! I love using this kind of pasta for my kids, who tend to sometimes eat around the fresh vegetables that I put INTO the food.

With this pasta salad, you can’t get away from the vegetables, and plentiful. I make a big batch of this sometimes JUST for the leftovers. It gets better on day 2 after it gets nice and melded together.
