I don't even remember how long I've had this great recipe for pasta salad, but I know it's been over thirty years. It was given to me by a friend, when we lived in Michigan, and I've made it ever since, to the delight of my family! The basics for this pasta are simple...your favorite pasta, Italian dressing, McCormick's Salad Supreme...and then any veggies, meats or cheeses you love! Really, that's it!
