3 cups pasta (cooked and drained)
2 cups chopped vegetables

Cook pasta according to package directions and drain. Mix with vegetables. Pour dressing over and lightly mix until everything is covered with dressing. Chill for at least an hour before serving. Itâ€™s best made the night before.
Tips for Good Results
Most any type of pasta cut in short sections will work with this recipe. Even basic macaroni noodles are fine. But, I think the spirals taste and look the best. My top picks are the colored spirals in green or mixed colors.
Firm vegetables work best. I generally use carrots, celery, and broccoli pieces. These stay crunchy and also have a nice color balance/contrast.
Any Italian dressing works fineâ€”even the low fat. My favorite is Kraft zesty.

We Answered:Cook and drain the pasta you want to use.
Mix in a large bowl, pour any bottled italian dressing over it and mix. Chill for about an hour. I like using Newman's Own Cesar dressing for my salads.
