How To Make twisty italian pasta salad

  • 1
    Cook pasta according to package directions.
  • 2
    Rinse pasta with cold water until pasta has cooled.
  • 3
    Combine pasta, tomatoes, olives, chick peas, cucumber, carrot and bell pepper into a large bowl.
  • 4
    Pour one bottle of Zesty Italian Dressing onto pasta salad.
  • 5
    Serve immediately or cool in refrigerator for at least two hours so the flavors can marinate to enrich its flavor. I also like this pasta salad served over a small bed of lettuce. *NOTE: Make sure you get Zesty Italian Dressing. It's just not the same if it's not Zesty.
