THIS IS A VERY LIGHT AND EASY TO MAKE PASTA SALAD AND EVERYONE LOVES IT.

Ingredients

1 PKG. OF COLORED PASTA - THE SWIRL KIND
1 BOTTLE OF ZESTY ITALIAN SALAD DRESSING
1 MED. CUT UP GREEN PEPPER
1 MED. CUT UP WHITE ONION
YOU CAN ALSO ADD OTHERE INGREDIENTS LIKE (BLACK OLIVES, PARMESAN CHEESE, TOMATOES)IT IS JUST WHAT EVER YOUR PREFERENCE.

Directions

COOK PASTA TO DIRECTIONS ON PACKAGE.

WHILE YOUR PASTA IS COOKING CUT UP GREEN PEPPER AND ONION.

WHEN PASTA IS DONE COOKING, DRAIN IN STRAINER AND RUN COLD WATER OVER. PUT PASTA EITHER BACK IN PAN OR IN A CONTAINER YOU WILL PUT IN FRIDGE.

POUR HALF A BOTTLE OF SALAD DRESSING INTO PASTA, ADD GREEN PEPPER AND ONION, STIR. COVER AND PUT IN FRIDGE, I LIKE TO LET MY PASTA SIT IN FRIDGE OVER NIGHT BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO, AS LONG AS IT IS GOOD AND CHILLED.

ABOUT AN HOUR BEFORE YOU ARE READY TO TAKE OUT OF FRIDGE ADD THE REMAINING DRESSING. YOU CAN USE MORE OR LESS OF ANY OF THE INGREDIENTS YOU LIKE.

MY FAMILY LOVES THIS EVERYTIME I FIX IT.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
