Green Bean Pasta Salad

Between the spring like weather and the time change, it seemed the right time to make some pasta salad.  I had seen this recipe in Real Simple, but it’s not quite green bean season yet and I didn’t have any fresh parsley either.  With frozen green beans and pantry spices, I forged ahead.  I am so glad I did; the pasta salad was a great change of pace, and quite colorful.
