REAL EASY PASTA SALAD
I have to tell you I really don't do a lot of accurate measuring when I cook, so I hope this makes some sense to you. The measurements are "approximate", but with this recipe, it doesn't matter all that much. Add what you like.
2 boxes pasta (any kind will do; I personally like funky pasta like fiori or rotelli but penne is also good)
1 green pepper
1 red pepper (or yellow or orange if you prefer--they all taste the same anyway)
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup shredded cheese or cubed cheese (I like Co-jack for this recipe but you can use whatever)
1 cup shredded purple cabbage
1 cup broccoli
1 cup cauliflower
1 bottle of Russian dressing (or something else you like better)
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
2 tbsp. Oregano
Cook the pasta, chop up all the vegetables (I like my broccoli and cauliflower really small and my cherry tomatoes chopped in half so they don't squirt so much, but whatev!!!), mix it all in a big bowl with the dressing, pepper, and oregano, and Yum Yum a very easy pasta salad appears. Have at it.
