Simple Pasta Salad
Recipe by Robert Halpin, Greensboro-Guilford Emergency Management
1 lb. pasta (I prefer rigatoni or penne)
1 to 2 cloves of fresh garlic, minced (I use a garlic press)
1/2 large red onion, small dice
1/2 green bell pepper, small dice
1/2 colored bell pepper, small dice
1/2 to 3/4 container of Kraft 3-Cheese (Parmesan, Romano, & Asiago)
3 Roma tomatoes, cubed
1 cucumber, peeled and cubed
Salt & Pepper
Large bottle of Paul Newman's Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing (This is easier and
less expensive than making your own)
Cook, drain, and chill pasta.
Combine all ingredients, using salt, pepper, and garlic to taste.
Garnish with cheese, pepper rings, and crowned tomato... then serve!
