Dress Up Pasta Salad

  • Yield: About 10 cups, serving 10 to 12



  • Bring a large, heavy pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.
  • Add the pasta and return to a low boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook pasta according to the package directions, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent the pasta from sticking together. Donít overcook!
  • Using oven mitts or pot holders, drain the pasta in a colander set in the sink, pouring away from you. Rinse with cold water until the pasta is cool and allow to drain in the sink for 10 minutes.
  • Place the pasta in a large mixing bowl.
  • Toss with the remaining ingredients, stirring well with a large wooden spoon.
  • If desired, add optional ingredients (below).
