Summer Pasta Salad

This pasta salad can be made days ahead, and it should be refrigerated for a few hours before serving, making it the perfect supper to make in the morning, getting all of the work out of the way.

Ingredients:

  • 1 box spiral pasta noodles
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 can sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup diced purple onion
  • 1 diced bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup Italian dressing

Directions:

Cook pasta according to directions and drain. Add all remaining ingredients and pasta to a large bowl, preferably with a lid, and stir well to incorporate all ingredients. You may need to add a little more dressing or cheese, depending on the texture you like. After mixing it together really well, refrigerate for at least a few hours before serving. You can serve it alone for a light supper, or add grilled chicken or shrimp right before serving. I also love this pasta salad as a side dish for steaks or kabobs in the summer months. It is really good. Enjoy!
