Make Ahead Veggie Pasta Salad - When choosing a pasta shape for a salad of this nature always choose one that will hold up well. It should also compete with the texture of the other salad ingredients. Elbow macaroni, shell, bow ties, wagon wheels and tortellini pasta are good choices when it comes to making a pasta salad.
