Cooking Thursday

 Todays recipe is one of my favorite pasta salads.  It's pretty with the red and green vegetables and is full of flavor.  I get asked for the recipe often, so I'm sharing it with you.

Italian Vegetable Pasta Salad

8 ounces uncooked tri-color pasta
1 1/2 cup broccoli florets
3/4 cup chopped bell pepper
3/4 cup cherry tomatoes
1 cup cubed Monterey Jack Cheese
1 1/4 cup Wishbone Robusto Italian Dressing *

Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and rinse with cold water until cooled.   In large bowl combine all ingredients except dressing and mix well.  Add 1 cup dressing and stir together.
Refrigerate overnight.  Before serving, stir in additional 1/4 cup of dressing.
* Using this specific flavor makes a big difference in how the salad tastes.

It looks like a salad in a fancy restaraunt. And with the pasta in it, you could make a whole meal of it!

Here in Portugal, the cold weather is starting to show, but this salad will be a great Summer meal!

Yes I make this often also. Sometimes as a side dish, on hot days, as an entreé.
