Add the dressing as desired o the pasta. Use as much or little as you want.

If you want to double this recipe, use two packages of pasta and use as much extra vegetables as suites your taste. I find that a double recipe usually doesn't need two bottles of dressing.

I've made this for BBQs, potluck lunches, family gatherings and sports banquets, and I've never had leftovers.
