Fast Pasta Salad!

        If you need a simple FAST dish for a picnic or BBQ, this is my GO TO remedy. Light & Fresh with LOTS of FLAVOR!

6 OZ. Macaroni ( I use shells or spirals) cooked
1 LB Broccoli, Cauliflower & Carrot Medley ( add to the last 2 minutes of cooking time of the pasta to lightly cook the veggies)
1 15.05 oz. Can of Chopped Tomatoes + the Juice OR 1 Jar Salsa!
1 Green Pepper Chopped
1/4 Cup Red Onion Chopped
3 Ribs Celery Chopped
1 TBS Parsley Chopped ( fresh is best but dried is ok too)
1 Cup Italian Dressing
1 Cup Shredded Italian Cheese Blend

Cook macaroni according to package adding the frozen veggies in the last 2 minutes of cooking time. Cook & drain. In large bowl add the drained pasta & veggies & remaining ingredients. Stir to combine & chill ! Makes a good 8 servings!  Feel free to add black olives, mushrooms, fresh tomato & even spinach. The above recipe is my basic one that I vary from time to time! Cold steamed shrimp or crab or even pepperoni is GREAT in this too!
