Pasta Veggie Salad

I've had this recipe for a few years and kinda forgot about it. With company in town last week, I pulled it out of the files and decided to make it.

It is so yummy and makes quite a bit if you use a whole box of pasta or you can use half a box if desired.

I boiled tri-colored pasta according to directions on box.
Add chopped carrots and tomatoes........





Add chopeed broccoli.....






Add cucumbers.....











Mix with Ken's Three Cheese Italian Dressing and refrigerate.






It's healthy, delicious, colorful and can be eaten alone or as a side dish with dinner or a sandwich.



At time of serving you may want to add more dressing. Enjoy!



I'm joining Michael @ Designs by Gollum for Foodie Friday and Nicole @http://www.momtrends.com/2011/07/tips-for-the-perfect-burger/



Thanks for stopping by!

I love this recipe and have made it too, but did not use this dressing. I am going to try this with your way. Perfect for summer when you want fast, quick and cool foods.
Thank you for sharing your recipe and thank you for stopping by my studio today. You are such a dear and blessings to you always.
