Very Easy and Quick Pasta Salad

The nice weather is now here and it's time to move outside for picnics and barbecues. This pasta salad is my dad's easy recipe but I added Parmesan cheese and olives to the finished product. It can be made in literally 15 minutes!


1 pkg. tri-colored spiral pasta
1/2 cucumber cubed
1/2 pt grape tomatoes halved or quartered
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 pkg. Good Seasons zesty Italian dressing
1 small bottle of your favorite Italian dressing
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
*olives optional


Boil pasta until it is cooked al dente, drain and rinse with cold water. Toss in the vegetables and mix in salad dressings. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top and mix all ingredients together. Chill for 2 hours.
