    Default Summertime Pasta Salad

    Cheap and Easy Meal (Summertime Pasta Salad)

    Okay, this is my first post here, so bear with me I don't know if this can be made for under $5, but we *live* on this stuff in the summertime, so I'd thought I'd share.....I take this to potlucks, get-togethers, and parties, and someone always asks me for the recipe (even though I throw it together by "eyeing it", lol)

    Summertime Pasta Salad

    1 16-oz. box of vegetable pasta spirals
    2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced
    1 or 2 containers grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
    1 large sweet onion, diced
    1 16-oz. jar green olives, drained (slice the olives in half)
    1 32-oz. jar Ranch dressing (or use your own homemade)
    (I say a 32-oz. jar, but you may use less)

    Cook and drain the pasta according to package directions. Rinse well with cold water and drain again. Put the pasta in a large bowl and add the tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet onion, and olives. Toss till well mixed. Pour the Ranch dressing on, stir to coat everything evenly, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. YUM! These ingredients are approximate, so if you like more cukes and 'maters--add them! Hope you all enjoy this as much as my family does!

    By the way, this list is GREAT!!!! I've learned so much from everyone in the little time I've been here

    Warm Blessings,
