Summertime Pasta Salad
For our family’s Father’s Day Gathering, I made a great pasta salad. When I was a kid, I avoided all mixed salads–pasta, potato, tuna, chicken. However, I loved my mom’s pasta salad (this is her recipe modified a bit). My very picky boyfriend even liked it. Plus, since I made it, it is GUARANTEED to be quick, easy, and very difficult to mess up.
-1 16 oz. Box of Rotini
-1 Package of Grape Tomatoes
-1 Large Cucumber
-1 8oz. Bag of Colby Jack Cheese Cubes
-1 Bottle of Seven Seas Viva Italian Dressing
Cook Pasta as package directs. Move pasta to bowl. Pour Italian dressing, grape tomatoes, and cheese cubes into pasta. Seed and chop cucumber; add to pasta. Chill in refridgerator and serve.
To make this pasta salad an entree, simply add pepperoni, turkey pepperoni, or a vegetarian equivalent. You can also add chopped black olives or substitute your own homemade zesty italian dressing for some extra flavor.
