Veggie Pasta SaladPosted: January 30, 2012
This is an easy pasta salad that is open to interpretation. It is great for parties. Play around with the pasta shapes and the types of veggies added. If I don’t have Salad Supreme, I’ll add a few shakes of Mrs. Dash instead. My mother-in-law makes this pasta salad using spaghetti. It’s the best thing she makes.
Veggie Pasta Salad
1 16 oz. pkg. small shell (or fusilli or rotini) pasta – cooked, rinsed and drained
8 oz. Wishbone Italian dressing (or your favorite italian dressing)
4 T. McCormick’s Salad Supreme (this has cheese in it…so you could leave it out or use something else)

some veggies you can use:
cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and chopped
carrots, peeled and sliced
grape tomatoes, halved
red onion , chopped
bell peppers (any color), chopped
