Pasta Salad with Goat Cheese and Arugula Everyday Food. You can prep the components of this pasta salad in advance -- toss together just before serving. The spicy arugula, creamy goat cheese, and a touch of Dijon mustard give the dish plenty of flavor.
Roasted Garlic, Olive and Tomato Pasta Salad ~ This is a good pasta salad to make a night ahead. The garlic's best aromas come out overnight, and the chunks of tomatoes and olives tuck themselves into the pasta shells. I love that it's not a mayo recipe.
