Yesterday, I was looking for a very easy pasta salad recipe to make to go along with dinner.  I found the following recipe online and the link is http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Easy-Cold-Pasta-Salad/

 

Ingredients

 

  • 14 ounces                             uncooked rotini pasta
  • 2                             cucumbers, chopped
  • 1/2                             onion, finely chopped
  • 10                             cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 3/4 cup                             pitted black olives, sliced
  • 1 cup                             Italian-style salad dressing

                           Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the rotini, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and cool by running cold water over the pasta in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Combine cooked and cooled pasta with the cucumbers, onion, tomatoes, and olives in a large bowl. Pour the Italian dressing over the salad and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.

 

This was a super easy recipe. I did not put in the olives as my household doesn’t like the but it turned out well. It was very yummy.
