Wheat Berry Pasta Salad

This is one of MaMa's favorite things to make for lunch or a quick dinner.  She usually makes it with miniature bow-tie pasta, but she was all of out it when she made it for this photo.  It's a great blend of flavors and tastes pretty gourmet consider how quickly she can throw it together.
