So you need to take a pasta salad to the work BBQ or the family get together? But you are so bored of the macaroni or potato salad options from the grocery store? Well do I have a solution for you!
The BEST Pasta Salad EVER!
So my grandma made this for me every single holiday. I would then proceed to almost eat the entire bowl by myself. She puts broccoli, tomatoes and olives in here salad. I have changed the recipe up a little bit because I don’t like tomatoes or olives. I started putting red, green, and yellow peppers in it instead (well the broccoli also).
So this is what you are going to need for this amazing recipe!
2 Heads of broccoli
1 bottle of HOUSE Italian Dressing (not Zesty)
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 full bag of pasta salad pasta
I use 1/2 bag of rotini pasta and 1/2 bag of large elbow macaroni.
The first thing you will want to do is put cook your pasta. Boil until the pasta in nice and soft (not squishy though)
While your noodles are cooking you will want to cut up your vegetables
First cut up your broccoli into bite size pieces
Pour them into a large mixing bowl
Now cut up all of the peppers and put them into the bowl
Now mix up all of the vegetables! Looks so pretty and yummy!
Once your noodles are done, drain them and put them into a separate mixing bowl
Now mix up the noodles into the vegetables so it dispersed evenly!
NOW for the dressing!
You want to pour half of the bottle on top of the salad
This is what your bottle should look like
You will want to now put tin foil over the bowl and put into the refrigerator for about 6 hours
Now take out and pour the rest of the dressing on top and mix!
Place into fridge for another 45 minutes.
Take out, mix and eat!
