Recipe for Elaine's Rotelli Pasta Salad


    Elaine's Rotelli Pasta Salad

    Source: Elaine McCann

    This is from my sister. I really don't like pasta salad but this one is good.

    2 pounds rotelli, mixed colors
    1 large bunch broccoli
    1 large onion
    Black or green olives
    1 can garbanzo beans, drained
    2 bottles Caesar salad dressing (or make your own dressing)*

    * I used Newman's Own Caesar Dressing and it was delicious.

    Cook and drain pasta. Put into large bowl. Dice broccoli and onion and either microwave or steam until tender, but not overcooked. Slice olives. Toss vegetables with pasta and pour salad dressing over all. Reserve a little dressing. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

    Pour additional dressing over salad before serving.

    This salad is very adaptable. You can add or subtract any vegetables that you want.
