How to Make Mike's Springtime Pasta Salad

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 7 steps you must follow to make Mike's Springtime Pasta Salad in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Primary items needed.
  • Step 2
  • Boil 6" pasta water. Add a splash of oil and 1 tablespoon salt. Add pasta. Bring water back to a boil and boil pasta for 10 minutes with a tight fitting lid. Or, as per manufactures directions.
  • Step 3
  • Drain pasta well and immediately place it in a large bowl. Add 1 bottle of Zesty Italian Dressing, [use your preference] mix and place a tight fitting lid on it. This step will ensure the Italian oils and seasonings seep deep into your pasta.
  • Step 4
  • ° Put your vegetables and cheeses in another large bowl making sure everything is bite size. ° Look around in your pantry or fridges crisper for any additional vegetables you may want to use in your salad. I found purple, white and green onions, celery, sun dried tomatoes, fresh basil and parsley and employed them all.
  • Step 5
  • After your pasta has fully steamed and cooled - add your vegetable and cheese mixture and gently fold in to your wet pasta bowl. Add your additional bottle of Zesty Italian - as needed. I usually use about 1 1/2 bottles total.
  • Step 6
  • Chill in the fridge for a few hours for best results. This dish is even better the following day.
  • Step 7
  • Enjoy!
