Pasta Salad

Pasta Salad is one of those dishes that's hard to mess up. (Which makes it a good dish for college kids everywhere!) It's relatively cheap to make and you add whatever kind of cheese or meat you like. I paid $.49 for a box of this pasta and used ingredients I already had on hand. This recipe is open to being creative so I'm going to give suggestions for ingredients versus a strict outline.


2 cups of cooked pasta (Can be penne, bow tie or the corkscrew kind.)
1/2 cup of Italian or Creamy Caesar Dressing
1 cup of cubed cheese (Can be cheddar or feta cheese)
1/2 cup of chopped peppers (Green, Red, Yellow or Orange) or chopped broccoli and/or olives
1 cup of cooked meat (I used chicken.)

  1. Cook pasta according to directions on the box.
  2. Let pasta cool in covered dished. (If you leave it uncovered, the pasta dries out)
  3. Combine pasta with salad dressing, vegetables, meat and cheese. Mix well.
  4. Best served cold. If you need to, add more dressing. Salt and Pepper to taste.
