DirectionsCook spaghetti in a large pot of boiling salted water, for approximately 7 to 8 minutes, or just until al dente. Remove from heat & drain into large colander, & rinse in cold water till cool.Empty into VERY LARGE bowl. Then add remaining ingredients, one or two items at a time and stir to mix as you go, till all of the remaining ingredients have been added. Toss with the Italian Dressing, and pour into a large pan, or several pans or containers. It is best to prepare salad a day in advance so that the flavors has a chance to marry.Store in fridge till ready to serve.If fresh tomatoes are too expensive use 2 large or 4 of the 15 1/5 oz size, but WELL DRAINED. May also cut recipe in half if desired, and you have big pasta lovers in your crowd.
NOTE: It is very important NOT TO LET SPAGHETTI sit in HOT WATER, as it continues to cook , and will get too soggy. Drain immediately after removing from heat.
