Summer Pasta Salad

1-8oz Wish Bone Italian dressing -or more to taste and moisten

1 cup broccoli flowerets, cut into small bite size pieces

¾ cup black olives sliced

¾ cup cherry tomatoes halved

4 oz. fettuccini noodles or other noodles cooked

¼ cup parmesan cheese (or more to taste)

¼ cup bacon, cooked and crumbled



Pour dressing on broccoli, olives and tomatoes. Cover and marinate in frig for 3

hours or more. Combine mixture with noodles, cheese and bacon. Toss to coat.


*Sometimes I will use different robust Italian dressings and it turns out great!

Also, Instead of marinating the broccoli, I will very slightly cook it in the pasta

water, pull it out and then put the dressing on the veggies while the pasta cooks.

The family likes the veggies so I put more then the recipe calls for.

This is a very forgiving recipe, enjoy!
