spaghetti salad

  • 1 8 oz. bottle Italian salad dressing
  • 1 package Good Seasons Italian dressing (dry)
  • 1 large tomato (chopped)
  • 1 green bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 red onion (chopped)
  • 1 8 ounce? 12 ounce? 16 ounce? (not sure) package pasta (cooked to taste)
  • 1 can sliced olives—choose your own size
  • Cook pasta and drain (do not rinse)
  • Sprinkle the dry Good Seasons dressing over the pasta and mix well
  • Add chopped tomatoes, bell peppers, red onions and sliced olives; mix well
  • Toss entire mixture with 1/2 bottle Italian dressing and coat all ingredients thoroughly
  • Cover and refrigerate
  • Toss again just before serving with additional dressing (if needed)
Additional Advice:
  • Make up the night before so everything can marinate well
  • Sprinkle and mix in Parmesan or Romano cheese to add extra flavor
