The Freshman Cook: Seasonal Pasta Salad

This weeks salad is a dish that is a sure fit for your football buffet. It is made up of a universal favorite~Pasta, and added to the pasta is a spicy, deliciously tasty, beef Kielbasa. Add slices of red onion, and sun dried tomatoes to bring a sweet, heavenly, indulgent taste to the bowl. I think it has something for every football fan!!
