Pasta Salad

Basically when it comes to the veggies I use whatever I have in the fridge. Here are some suggestions -
Celery, green peppers, carrots, mushrooms, onions, spinach, zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes.
For the pasta I use either spaghetti noodles broken into about 3 inch sections or spirals. I love the spirals that are multi-colored.
Salad Supreme Seasonings
Pepperoni, sliced olives, sliced dill pickles, kidney beans.


Cook your pasta according to package directions. Chop up your veggies. Drain and cool the pasta. Place the pasta and veggies in a bowl. Now my favorite things to add -
Pepperoni, sliced olives, sliced dill pickles, kidney beans. Use Italian Dressing. Everyone has a different amount they like. Some like it more wet, some like it more dry. My secret though is Salad Supreme Seasonings. I use about 1/4 of the bottle for my pasta salad. Serve cold.

Try this sometime. It’s so easy and really makes such a nice meal. Use my chili recipe or chili from a can. Make spaghetti noodles. Put them on a plate, Put chili on top of noodles and add shredded cheese. This is also a great way to serve any leftover chili in a different way for a later night. Chili is also great to freeze the extras and then just thaw them out whenever you need an easy dinner!
