Garlic Pasta Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PanNan

Don't let the simplicity of this recipe fool you. The taste is fantastic. I first tried it as a sample at the H.E.B. grocery store in my neighborhood. Of course they were promoting purchase of a bottle of Garlic Essence Vinaigrette. I've found you can use any basic garlic vinaigrette, bottled or home made, and have a similar result.

Very good! I used tri-color rotini, added some sliced green olives to the mix and loved it. Made for ZWT6 Family Picks for SSaSSy's
