  • Stove


  • 2 boxes of tri-color rotini pasta
  • 1 bottle of Italian Dressing
  • 1 bottle of Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Broccoli
  • Cucumbers
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Pepper


  • First, I'm going to put my pasta in a large pot and wait for it to come to a boil. It should take about 10-15 minutes for the noodles to cook.
    **Be sure not to overcook your noodles.**
  • As you noodles are cooking you'll begin to cut your vegetables. I like to use broccoli, cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes.
  • After your pasta finishes boiling pour it into a large pan or dish.
    **Allow your noodles to cool before you add your vegetables, because you don't them to cook in your pasta. **
  • Once the pasta has finished cooling, you can begin to add your Balsamic vinaigrette and Italian dressing.
  • There is no set amount of vinaigrette or dressing to add, it all depends on you and your taste buds. Just remember to add enough to keep your pasta moist.
  • Continue mixing your dressing and vinaigrette into your pasta. Then allow your pasta to sit and marinate in the dressing before adding your vegetables.
  • As your adding in vegetables you can continue to add in vinagrette and dressing.


Pasta salad is one of those dishes that tastes better the longer it sits and it's extremely easy to make not to mention it's delicious!
