How to Make Ultimate Pasta Salad


  • 1Prepare Garden Rotini Pasta according to package directions. Prepare a large mixing bowl with a fitting lid.
  • 2Drain 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.
  • 3In 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.
  • 4Enjoy! Can be refrigerated for up to one week.
  • 5NOTES: Additions and substitutions are easy. Often we'll add shrimp or chicken, leftovers of any sort, parmasan cheese, croutons...the list goes on!
