Pasta Salad Recipe

Happy Labor Day weekend! This is the perfect side dish to bring to that pot luck labor day barbecue. It’s one of my favorite go-to dishes during the summer. Also great for picnics!

The great thing about it is that you can basically put anything you want in ti. The basics are 1 box colored twisty pasta. I’m blanking on the actual name… and a bottle of Wishbone Italian dressing. Of course you can use another brand but I think wishbone is the best for this salad. And I always put in black olives. Other than that, I switch it up!
So here is the recipe:


1 lb twisty pasta or tube pasta

1/2 bottle Italian dressing

1 can whole black olives

Other possible add-ins: cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, Parmesan cheese, red bell peppers, etc.

Cook pasta according to directions on package. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Pour in dressing and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours or until cool. Add the rest of of the add0ins and maybe a little more dressing, to taste. Enjoy!
