Pasta Salad

1 Comment

Here is another lovely Pasta Salad that I like to serve with BBQ foods.  It is a variation on the Veggie salad, but with tri-color rotini pasta.

Pasta Salad

Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 12-16 oz tri-color Rotini Pasta
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled and cut into bite size chunks (remove the seeds if they are large)
  • 1 package grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 large yellow bell pepper, cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 can ripe olives, drained
  • 3/4 cup Italian dressing (I used a roasted red pepper Italian dressing that is quite yummy)

Instructions:

Cook the pasta according to package directions.  Drain and shock with cold water to bring the temperature down.  Combine the pasta, veggies and the dressing. Toss.  Chill and serve.

I am a home school mom of three wonderful kids. I have been married for over 20 years and am still in love. I love to cook, as a young child I enjoyed spending time with my mom in the kitchen and that love has grown into a passion. I started this blog to share my favorite recipes with friends and family and have enjoyed seeing it grow beyond those boundaries.
