Hot tips from Food Network Kitchens' Katherine Alford:

Instead of the usual penne or macaroni, try stuffed pasta like ravioli, tortellini or pierogi in a pasta salad. Stick to cheese varieties (meat-filled pasta isn't as appealing cold) and choose a subtle dressing that won't overpower the filling, like the lemony one in this Ravioli Salad from Food Network Magazine.
