Easy Summer Pasta Salad

A big dish of Nina's Easy Summer Pasta Salad

A great Summer dish that will keep in the refrigerator for about a week! And if you leave the chicken out, vegetarians will love this one!

INGREDIENTS

2 10-ounce bags veggie spiral pasta
8 ounces Parmesan cheese
1 large bottle of Wish Bone Italian Dressing
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 cup celery
2 cups carrots
1 large can pitted black olives
2 cups diced chicken breast (optional)
Chef Paul Prudhomme Poultry Magic Seasoning (optional to taste)

All the ingredients laid out for Nina's Easy Summer Pasta Salad

INSTRUCTIONS

Boil pasta 8 minutes and drain. Cut all veggies into bite size pieces. DO NOT COOK the veggies.

The chicken is optional, but of you want to make chicken pasta salad, I recommend cooking the chicken breast in bite-size pieces first, applying the Chef Paul Prudhomme Poultry Magic seasoning liberally. Cook the chicken on high heat for 5 to 7 minutes.

In a very large bowl, combine the pasta, raw veggies (cooked chicken if desired) and toss together. Add Parmesan cheese and black pepper, then add Wishbone Italian Dressing. DON’T ADD ANY SALT.
