Corkscrew Pasta Salad with Ricotta

Corkscrew Pasta Salad with Ricotta

Ready in 1 hour

This is the tastiest pasta salad ever, with a coating of ricotta, marinated mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, and optional artichoke hearts. Great for bringing to gatherings. It will disappear quickly.

"This recipe is fantastic! I made it with the optional avocados and cherry tomatoes. The avocados and the ricotta cheese in the dressing definitely push it over the edge to fabulous! It's my new go-to pasta salad recipe."
