Ingredients Nutrition

  3. In large bowl, place pasta, and chopped veggies.
  4. Add approx.
  5. 1/2 the bottle of dressing and toss well.
  6. The pasta will soak up the dressing as it marinates in the fridge, so you may need to add more before serving.
  7. Chill several hours or overnight for best flavor.
  8. You can use a whole box of pasta for a large gathering, and increase the tomato and cucumber to 2 each.
  9. Increase the onion to suit your taste.
