This is the best snack to have sitting in the fridge to just pull out and have some bites right out of the bowl. It tastes better as it sits. Pasta salad is "waymo" (definition: way mormon, or extremely typical of Utah Mormon behavior) I have been to countless enrichment nights where it is pasta salad mania. Now this pasta salad is nothing special, no candied walnuts, no cranberries, no guinevere cheese, just pasta and vegetables.
Bag of tri colored rotini pasta
dry pkg of Good Seasons Zesty Italian
1/3 c extra virgin olive oil
1/3 c balsamic vinegar
handfuls of the following fine diced vegetables
green bell pepper
red bell pepper (yellow too if you want)
red onion (very optional)
Handful of shredded parmesan cheese
Cook the pasta and rinse it in cold water. Combine the oil and vinegar and seasoning packet. Combine everything together and stir well. Allow to cook before serving.
