Easy & Simple Pasta Salad

Submitted by: CJNSYNC
Easy & Simple Pasta Salad

Introduction

This is easy and can be eaten as a side dish or main dish. If I'm making it as a main dish I sometimes add chicken, low fat salami or feta cheese (all not included in the calorie count).

I prefer to make it the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight to allow the pasta to soak up all the flavors.

Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    3 cups dry orecchiette pasta (or any pasta, really)
    1 large can sliced black olives
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
    1 red bell pepper, chopped
    1/2 cup Kraft Roasted Red Pepper Italian with Parmesan salad dressing and marinade
    2 tbsp McCormick Salad Supreme seasoning

Directions

Bring water to a boil in large pot; add pasta and cook according to package directions.
While pasta is cooking, clean and chop up peppers and olives (if not already sliced in the can). When pasta is fully cooked, drain and put into large plastic storage container. Add peppers, olives, seasoning and salad dressing and mix to coat pasta evenly. Cover and place in fridge for a few hours (or overnight) to allow the flavors to blend and the pasta to cool. Enjoy!

Makes about 10 1 cup servings.
