Recipe: Super Duper Simple Pasta Salad

I have tried all sorts of fancy macaroni and pasta salad recipes, but the one I always come back to is my very own.  I'm sure others out there make something exactly the same or nearly so, but I call it my own because I have never used a recipe to make it anyway : )

  • Black olives
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots
  • Pimentos (small jar)
  • Red onion
  • Box of rotini pasta
  • One bottle of your favorite Italian dressing
  1. Cook pasta according to directions.  Make sure not to overcook, so that it doesn't become mushy.
  2. Peel and slice vegetables and black olives.  I suggest buying already shredded carrots and sliced olives if short on time.
  3. Mix pasta, pimentos, black olives, and vegetables in a large bowl.
  4. Add enough Italian dressing to toss and coat the salad.  Continue adding until is suites your taste.  We usually use an entire bottle, but you may not like as much kick.
