  3. Drain Rotini; rinse with cold water for about 3 minutes.
  4. Mix pasta with tomato, peppers, onion and olives.
  5. Refrigerate for about 1/2 an hour.
  6. Add salad dressing; mix well.
  7. Add Parmesan cheese; mix well.
  8. Serve immediately.
  9. If you have left overs, you will have to "re-wet" salad by adding a little more salad dressing the next day, especially if you substitute the dressing with a fat-free dressing.
