Italian Pasta Salad

The weather is getting warmer (FINALLY!) and it is the season for barbecues and outdoor fun! I love a good BBQ potluck and I love to make this pasta salad. It is delicious and easy.

Italian Pasta Salad
1 12 oz. pkg rainbow rotini
1 medium tomato, diced
1 can olives, sliced
1 8 oz. pkg Italian blend shredded cheese
1/4 c. grated Parmesan
1 bottle fat free Italian dressing (I prefer Kraft)

Cook rainbow rotini according to package directions. Drain in colander and run cold water over it until is is cold. Pour into a large bowl add tomato, olives, and Italian cheese. Stir until well mixed then add Italian dressing and toss to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Enjoy! Check out some other rockin' recipes at The Grocery Cart Challenge!
