"Ok I need to bring a pasta salad for today's BBQ that a friend is hosting, and who the heck has a lot of time or money anymore these days, so I decided to try to shop on a budget and for the first time in about 6 years went to my local ALDI, I was hesitant about it at first because the last time I went there the quality was not up to par, but I went and got all the below ingredients, and for about 13.00 I made the Biggest batch of pasta salad ever, and its in the chill chest as we speak, so I hope you all will try your local aldi and save some money like I did. The only thing I didn't use was aldi mayo because I had some hellmans already at home, and its the only mayo ill ever use"
