My Favorite Pasta Salad

I love this salad because it is SO easy, quick and yummy. It is really more of a list of ingredients than a recipe. But hey, easy is good and maybe I am just LAME but I didn't make pasta salad forever because I had no idea how easy it really was. So if any of you out there are like me, well, let me save you the hassle and give you the list right here!

Pasta Salad

16 oz spiral pasta (I like the multi colored) cooked and drained
red onion
broccoli
squash (zucchini or yellow)
carrots
tomato
olives
1 bottle of Italian dressing
fresh grated Parmesan cheese

I just take whatever veggies I have on hand or feel like and chop them to bite size pieces. Now mix these with the pasta and pour the bottle of dressing over the top. Mix it well and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or over night. The dressing seems to soften the veggies a little so leave them raw. Make sure to toss the salad before serving as the dressing settles at the bottom. Sprinkle with Parmesan right before serving.
