Recipe: Pasta Salad

This is a tasty and easy salad to make for those summertime cookouts.  And leftovers keep nicely in the refrigerator.

12 oz box Bow Tie Pasta or any pasta of your choice, cooked al dente
WishBone Robusto Italian Dressing 8 oz.  for 12 oz. box of pasta
Broccoli flowerettes, cooked al dente and cut small
Grape or Cherry tomatoes

Combine pasta, broccoli, tomatoes and dressing and enjoy!  If making ahead, add enough dressing to just coat pasta and reapply before serving.  Delicious!

I just "bumped" into your page and this pasta salad caught my eye. Thank you for the recipe. I didn't have a mom to teach me to cook and now I'm trying to teach my daughter to be comfortable in the kitchen. Something as simple as a pasta salad always daunted me simply because I didn't know what the dressing was and how much to add. I always felt silly asking. So now we have a great salad to make for her brother's birthday dinner tomorrow. Thanks!

Erin O'Riordan said...

Not only is this a pretty dish, but it also contains some mouth-watering ingredients. Tomatoes and Italian dressing - two of my favorites!
