Supreme Pasta Salad.

I first had this pasta salad about five years ago when a co-worker brought it to a pot luck. See, I told you in my last post that pot lucks are THE BEST for new recipes! The best part of this recipe - it's perfect every time no matter which vegetables are in season or you have on hand. The magic ingredient - McCormick's Salad Supreme.

Supreme Pasta Salad
(adapted from McCormick)

1 box of your favorite pasta (about 12 ounces) (cooked according to package directions)
4 cups of fresh chopped vegetables (think broccoli, pepper, carrot, cauliflower, zucchini, tomato, cucumber, radish, onion - anything!)
1/2 package mini pepperoni
1.5 cups of italian salad dressing
4 teaspoons McCormick Salad Supreme seasoning

Toss all ingredients together. Store in the refrigerator.

This dish can double as a side dish or main dish. All those vegetables make it more than filling. And it can be made vegetarian by eliminating the pepperoni without losing any deliciousness. It comes together quick and is the perfect way to use of the bits of vegetables you have sitting around.
