Hi friends, how have you been? We are winding down the school year which always seems to leave us busier than ever with the older kids.  As they wrap up with school work and testing in all of their classes, I find myself daydreaming about the lazy days of Summer ahead.  There's just something about the warm air and sunshine mixed with the contagious joy that my children emanate after a long school year comes to a close. It was indeed a long year, friends, and I'm so completely ready for some uninterrupted fun with my kiddos!

While we have a few fun trips planned over summer break, some of my favorite memories are made simply, spending time around the pool with the kids, and having cookouts at dusk. For me, it always seems to be the little things that bring the most joy. While I'm still ticking down the days until school's out, I decided to pretend like it was summer and get a jump on barbecue season a few weeks back. The sun was out and we had a lovely spread of  burgers, hot dogs, and Supreme Pizza Pasta Salad; it was the perfect unofficial start to the summer season. My inspiration for this recipe, for Supreme Pizza Pasta Salad? My oldest son! He would literally eat pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I let him! My favorite part? It's loaded with fresh ingredients that are so much better for him.
His favorite part? It's packed with all of the delicious flavors of a supreme pizza!  It's a total win-win.

Are you ready for summer, too? Grab my recipe for Supreme Pizza Pasta Salad below, and have a little pre-summer cookout. This pasta salad is perfect for serving up at your Memorial Day barbecues, and at all of your other summer gatherings.
