How To Make donna's pasta salad
Disolve bouillon cubes in boiling water and cook pasta until al dente. Do not add salt. Drain and quickly rinse under cold water to stop cooking. Set aside.
Mix all of the vegetables in a very large mixing bowl then add the pasta. Pour about half a bottle of the Zesty Italian salad dressing and mix well. Add salt & pepper to taste.
Cover and refrigerate overnight. Pasta and vegetables will absorb a lot of the salad dressing so it will need more. Gradually add dressing, about half of the remaining bottle until salad is moist but not dripping wet.
