Forget boxed pasta salad, this creamy pasta salad with bacon, avocado and tomato will be your go to salad for all of your summer BBQ's. http://www.lifesambrosia.com/2010/06/creamy-bacon-tomato-and-avocado-pasta-salad-recipe.html
Lasagna soup. I had a ton left over but the noodles didn't like to "wait" while I got ready to bring it to a friends house (and then there was no liquid). Make the noodles separate if you want more "al dente" pasta. It was DELICIOUS!
