DIRECTIONS

  • Start boiling water for pasta and cook according to package directions.
  • While water is heating, you can proceed with the next step.
  • In a skillet, heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat, and add all of the sliced bell peppers, stirring continuously for about 5 minutes or until desired consistency is reached. Set aside to cool.
  • Drain pasta in cold water for a couple of minutes, until cool.
  • Place in a medium-sized Tupperware-type container and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine cider vinegar and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
  • Then mix in olive oil and vegetable oil.
  • Add the liquid mixture to the pasta.
  • Then mix in all of the bell peppers, black olives, pimientos, sliced sun-dried tomatoes, and chopped celery.
  • Add to taste: dash of onion powder, salt, basil leaf, oregano, and minced garlic (if desired).
  • Refrigerate for at least one hour. Best if refrigerated over night. Sometimes pasta will absorb the dressing, so you may want to add a little extra vinegar and oil before serving.
  • Note: You can adjust the amounts of sugar, vinegar, and oil to your desired taste.
  • Enjoy.
