Pasta Salad


This is da bomb. No joke :) Even kids will eat this up. I always get requests for it when I go to gatherings.

1 package of Wacky Mac veggie spirals
1 bottle of Italian dressing plus extra
3/4 cup of shredded or sliced carrots
3/4 cup of onions (purple onions are my favorite)
3/4 cup of thinly sliced green peppers
3/4 cup of thinly sliced red peppers
and whatever other veggies you may want to add or have on hand

Cook noodles according to the directions on the box. Meanwhile chop all our veggies. Drain noodles and place in large bowl. Add veggies and dressing. Cover and chill in fridge. You can make this in advance, in fact, it's one of those dishes that taste better the longer it marinates. I say extra Italian dressing because after it sits, the noodles absorb the liquid and you will need to add more. How much more, is up to you. We usually add 1/4 of another bottle or so.

Optional: Add cheese that is cubed. My husband has to have cheese in everything. That's what you get where you marry a cheese-head from Wisconsin. : )
