A Better Pasta Salad Recipe


  • I had some pasta salad a few weeks ago( it was good) and wanted to make a better one and here is my effort, I liked it!
  • 3/4 of a one pound box rotini( or your choice of pasta)
  • 1 cucumber peeled and diced (de-seed if you like)
  • 1/2 lb. grape tomatoes ( you can use tomatoes of your choice just de-seed and dice)
  • 2 and a 1/4 bottles of Low Fat Italian Dressing (I used Wishbone)
  • 1 stalk of celery diced
  • 1/4 of each chopped red, green and yellow bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup carrot sticks diced (they come in a pack at the store)
  • 1/2 diced red or yellow onion your choice
  • 1/4 tsp dried parsely (it was all I had at the time) fresh is better, if using fresh I would make it a tbsp.
  • 1/4 tsp garlic
  • 1 small package Oscar Mayer fresh bacon bits or chopped bacon will work
  • 1 dash black pepper
  • 1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • An option would be to add a small amount of white vinegar to the dressing
  • and leave off the 1/4 of Creamy Italian Dressing , it would give a little less sweetness to the dressing.
