Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Ingredients

1 box
garden rotini pasta (you can use as many as you like)
1 bottle
italian dressing
1 pkg
philadelphia cream cheese garlic cooking creme
1 pkg
broccoli slaw
1 can(s)
black olives
1 can(s)
water chestnuts
1 jar(s)
sliced green olives

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare Garden Rotini Pasta according to package directions. Prepare a large mixing bowl with a fitting lid.
2
Drain and cool pasta. Pour the Italian Dressing into a small saucepan and heat. Add the Philadelphia Cream Cheese Garlic Cooking Creme. Stir until mixed (there will be oil rising to the top, that's fine). Remove from heat.
3
In the large mixing bowl, pour in the pasta, the dressing/creme mixture, and the rest of the ingredients. (The green olives are very strong, so probably best not to use the entire jar!) Mix ingredients thoroughly.
4
Enjoy! Can be refrigerated for up to one week.

NOTES: Additions and substitutions are easy. Often we'll add shrimp or chicken, leftovers of any sort, parmasan cheese, croutons...the list goes on!
