Pasta Salad

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe yet.  My sisters and I ate this ALL the time growing up.  Still do actually.  No one else’s pasta salad has ever come close to this one because it is the best!  It is the perfect dish to bring along to a cook out or potluck, or make a batch of it to eat throughout the week.  The salad takes almost no time to throw together, so when I’m in a pinch to make something this is my go-to side dish. 
Ingredients
1 lb box of tri-color spiral pasta
1 16 oz bottle Zesty Italian Salad Dressing (I use Kraft)
1/2 a 2.26 oz bottle of Salad Supreme Seasoning (I use McCormick)

Add whatever veggies you like or have on hand, chopped up of course. 
Suggestions:
Carrots
Green onion
Red Onion
Bell pepper
Celery
Broccoli
Colliflower

Directions
-Cook pasta according to package directions.
-Add all chopped vegetables, dressing, seasoning, and cooked pasta to a bowl or a food storage container.  Stir to combine.  
-Cover and refrigerate.  Eat once it is cool but flavors will develop more overnight.
*If mixed in a food storage container, it is fun to put the lid on and just shake it!  Fun job for the kiddos.

A Greek version:
Use Greek dressing instead of Zesty Italian
Add fresh basil or dried oregano instead of salad supreme
Add cherry tomatoes, olives, sweet peppers, feta cheese.

Yum!
