Pasta Salad

This is the perfect summer dish! I love to make it for pot-lucks because it makes a ton!!

12 oz Rotini Pasta (I usually use the tri-colored pasta because I like the color, but any kind works!)

Cook the pasta as it directs on the package. Pour cooked pasta into a large bowl. Then add whatever you like of the following:

-chopped red pepper
-chopped green pepper
-sliced cucumbers
-sliced black olives
-chopped tomatoes
-sliced mushrooms
-cheese cubes
-diced red onions

Pour 16 oz. Zesty Italian dressing on salad. Mix well. Put salad in fridge for a couple of hours before serving. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top.

    I just found this recipe and plan to make it this weekend (need to get to the market for fresh produce!). The only thing different I would do is pour a little ranch dressing with the italian! We all love both dressings, so I thought mixing them together might make it even better – if that’s possible – right?!?! Thanks for sharing!
