Italian Pasta Salad

Ready in 4 hours

Very easy to make, healthy and tasty

"I've been doing this pasta for awhile, and I'm glad to see others. You don't need a "Suddenly Salad" box of pasta salad. It's so quick and easy to make. And I agree the key is that Kraft Zesty Italian so yummy. There's only two in my household, but when I make this, sometimes I make to boxes of pasta. Also, it's quite yummy when it's a little warm too! For others that stumble upon this recipe, toss any of your favorite veggies and meats into this pasta salad, and you won't go wrong! Thanks for posting this!"

This is a very good pasta salad. I used canned diced tomatos (which I pulsed in the food processor along with my onions). I omitted the olives and added extra parmesan. Will definatley make this again.

Great! I love this! I make it all the time, I think I an going to try the feta cheese instead also. I also use red, green, & yellow bell peppers and I don't use the broccoli I think it's a bit too much, instead I use a bag of frozen peas =)

Very good. I left out olives and used 2 ounces of Feta cheese in place of the parmesan. Semper Fi!
