This is a good basic antipasto pasta salad recipe. Uses bottled Italian dressing for ease, of course you could substitute your homemade. Trio Italiano pasta is a Skinner brand, has shells, rotino, and spiral pasta; you can substitute just shells or just spiral or any combination you like. This recipe comes straight from the package of pasta.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water to cool quickly.
  2. In large bowl, toss cooled pasta with remaining ingredients until well blended.
  3. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

This was a very good salad. I left out the pimento, but added a little more dressing, and halved the olives, too, since it seemed to fit better with the sliced tomatoes. It's very basic, and superfast, which was nice. It has a nice flavor, too. Thanks, and this will definitely be made again in our home.
