Pasta salad

The perfect side for whatever you are grilling tonight! Packed with flavor and fresh veggies this colorful, easy side is a perfect go-to for parties, picnics or your weeknight meal. Great leftover, the longer it's in the fridge the better it gets!

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 8 minutes

Servings: 10


1 package pasta noodles (I prefer the colorful whacky mac spirals)

1 bottle zesty Italian salad dressing

1 cucumber, peeled and cubed

1 package cherry tomatoes, halved

1 orange bell pepper, cubed

1/2 red onion, diced

1 jar green olives, or can black olives

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste


-Cook pasta according to package directions

-While pasta is cooking add Italian dressing to a large mixing bowl

-Prepare all your vegetables and add them to the bowl to soak

-Add cheese and olives, stir to coat

-When pasta has finished cooking, rinse and run cold water over it until it is cool (you want it al dente)

-Fold pasta into the vegetable mixture

-Cover and refrigerate for at least a half hour before serving
