This pasta salad is so easy to make!Cook the pasta and let it cool. Once the pasta is cold, add the remaining ingredients, adding the watermelon last. I have done variations of this recipe going without chicken or turkey and omitting the yogurt. The watermelon and pasta combination is a fresh, Summer treat!
