I usually have pretty good luck trying recipes for the first time. Beep beep. This weekend I went to a birthday grill out and I brought pasta salad. Most of the recipes showed a simple combination of pasta, raw vegetables and Italian dressing.
- 12 ounces tri-colored Rotini
- 1 whole diced red, green and yellow bell pepper
- 1/2 cup diced red onion
- 3 shredded carrots
- 1 large diced tomato
- 1 cup Italian dressing
- Parmesan cheese
Prepare your veggies and put aside in a large bowl (big enough to mix in). Boil a large pot of water and cook pasta according to the package directions (9-11 minutes). Drain and let cool for a couple of minutes. Add pasta to the veggies and toss with Italian dressing. I used about 1 cup but you can add less or more. Just keep tasting until you’re happy. Sprinkle parmesan cheese as a light garnish.
