Mango Salsa Pasta

This is a simple, yet refreshing pasta salad punched with the goodness of mango. Fun to make and delicious. Great on its own, and as a soothing side-dish.

Enjoy the fruity sensation!

    Looks like the cheater way is quite common…coz I do it this way too! :P

    Love this pasta salad – sounds so light and easy. And it’s got a citrus factor to it that makes me go weak.

    I just bought a whole box of mangoes at Costco last week and wondered what to do with them. This recipe looks perfect!

    I cheat, too – all the time. :wink: Who could bear wasting even one inch of a perfect mango? This is such a pretty dish, and that’s a great opening shot!

    Thanks for playing Presto Pasta Nights. This dish skips spring and jumps right into summer! Thanks, I need a dose of that.
