Easiest BBQ bring along ever

In the spirit of Labor Day I will tell you the easiest recipe for pasta salad that is a great, cheap, dish to bring to a BBQ or potluck.

  • One box of spiral pasta (macaroni or ziti will do also)
  • One bottle of full fat Italian Dressing (Personally I like Kraft - don't skimp on the calories, it'll be worth it, and besides it's still way lighter than a heavy mayo dressing salad)
  • One Green Pepper Chopped
  • About 8 Large Celery Stalks Chopped
  • One can Chopped Tomatoes (Feel free to mix and match any of these veggies)
  • Half a container of Parmesan Cheese

Cook the pasta, drain in cook water. Chop the veggies, mix with the cool pasta.

Wait until you are about to leave and then mix in the bottle of dressing and the cheese. If you do it too early, the pasta will absorb the moisture and the salad will be too dry.
