With temperatures rising ....
it's time for salads!
Today we made a huge
bowl of pasta salad!
Here's how we make it!

Start with a large bowl and add
chopped carrots, zucchini, sweet pea's,
yellow squash, and a bit of celery!
Actually you can use whatever vegetables
appeal to your family!

We precook our pasta for about 6-7 minutes.
Then we add broccoli and cauliflower and
blanch for 2-3 minutes.
Drain well.
We use 1 package of Cheese Tortellini and 2 boxes
of Tri-Colored Pasta.
Next we add chopped green onions and those
little bitty tomatoes cut in half.

We also add 1 can of diced black olives to the mix.

Lastly, the whole bowl is mixed well with
a bottle of 'Kraft' Free Zesty Italian!
And, there you have it!
Four large containers of YUMMY
Pasta Salad!
A versatile and easy summer
recipe! You can really add what
you want ...it's always delicious!
Ready to grab for a quick
lunch or dinner!
