Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) Package Uncooked Tri-color Spiral Pasta
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Green Bell Pepper
  • 2 Large Tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 Cup Sliced Red Onion
  • 1 Jar (or 10 ounce can) of Artichoke Hearts, drained and quartered
  • 1 Cup Broccoli - broken into small heads
  • 1 Cup Cauliflower - broken into small heads
  • 1 Small Can Sliced Black Olives
  • 1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1-2 (16 ounce) bottles Italian-style salad dressing or dressing of your choice. How much salad dressing you use depends on the size of your salad. I make a big salad so I use two.
  • NOTE: I also add cooked bacon to my salad. Cucumber and Mushrooms are good too.

Directions

  • Cook pasta in large pot of boiling water until al dente. Rinse under cold water until cool, and drain.
  • Mix green pepper, tomatoes, onion, artichokes, broccoli, cauliflower, olives together in large bowl.
  • Combine cooled pasta with vegetables. Pour Italian dressing over mixture, add Parmesan cheese and mix well.
  • Chill for one hour before serving.

Notes

This recipe is very versatile. You can make it a variety of ways! Use whatever you have on hand! A version of what my mother in law makes. We eat this a lot in the Summer!
