Pasta Salad

I am having lunch today with some of the people at our local farmers market.  It's pot luck, so I made some Pasta Salad.

2-12oz boxes of pasta
1-16oz bottle of Zesty Italian Dressing
3 to 4 tbsp of McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning
1 large cucumber (peeled or unpeeled)
2 medium/large tomatoes
1 large green pepper
2 heads of broccoli
1/2 head of cauliflower

Put the pasta in a large pot to cook.  Takes about 10 minutes.
While the pasta is cooking, cut up your other veggies in small chunks

When pasta is done drain off the water. Put back in pot and cover with cold water and drain again.  Cover with cold water a second time and drain again.  You want the pasta to be cool when you add your other veggies. 

Mix pasta with all other veggies in a large pot big enough to allow you to stir it up.  Add your dressing and seasoning.  Stir well. 

You can add more dressing and seasoning to suit your taste.

Allow to sit in the refrigerator a few hours to let the flavor soak in.

Sit back and enjoy!
