I tried this with whole wheat pasta and found the noodles were too chewy. Very disappointing.

1 lb
pasta of choice
1/4 to 1/2 c
any or all : chopped pickles, drained artichoke hearts, celery, grated carrot, broccoli florets, grated cheese, black &/or green olives chopped, red or green peppers, chopped scallions, mushrooms or any other veggie you like.
1 bottle
italian salad dressing
1/2 c
grated cheddar cheese


1Cook and cool pasta. It is very important to have cold pasta noodles before you proceed. I prefer tri colored rotini because it looks pretty.
2Into a large bowl: add all the chopped veggies you desire, cheese, pasta and salad dressing. Put the lid on and shake. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. Shake before serving.
3Add pepperoni, tuna or chopped ham if desired.
