    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (16 ounce) package uncooked rotini pasta (or penne, bowtie, or other chunky pasta)
    • 1 (16 ounce) bottle Italian salad dressing
    • 2 cucumbers, chopped
    • 6 tomatoes, chopped (or one pint cherry tomatoes)
    • 1 bunch green onion, chopped
    • 4 ounces grated parmesan cheese
    • 1 tablespoon italian seasoning


    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place pasta in the pot, cook for 8 to 12 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, toss the cooked pasta with the Italian dressing, cucumbers, tomatoes, and green onions. In a small bowl, mix the Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning, and mix into the salad. (You could use McCormick's Parmesan Herb Seasoning Blend instead - use the whole jar of 1.87 ounces.)
    3. 3
      Cover, and refrigerate until serving.

      Awesome quick recipe! Used a Briana's artichoke vinegarette (b/c what we had) and did all the rest the same, BUT, cut the recipe in half! Saving for lunch tomorrow and I am psyched! Thanks for the recipe!

      Very good!!! Made using Italian Salad Dressing and macaroni noodles (DH preference). Reduced it to a serving for 4 and left out the italian seasoning since the dressing had it mixed in. Made for 1-2-3-Hits March 10'.
