How to Make Vickie's Pasta Salad


  1. Cut the cheeses in cubes and set aside. Cut grape tomatoes in half and also set aside. Chop the raw broccoli and cauliflower up and set aside.
  2. Cook pasta according to directions on box- I usually cook mine ten minutes so it wont be soggy. Drain and rinse in cold water and put in large bowl.
  3. Add cubed cheeses and chopped veggies and tomatoes to pasta. Pour one jar of dressing over,mix well and put in refrigerator to chill, about one hour. Right before you serve pour other jar of dressing over pasta and mix well again. I usually only use half of the second jar of dressing all depends the taste your prefer. Serve and enjoy!!
