Note: You can change or add other ingredients to this recipe. I’ve found that small pieces of American cheese and cubed pieces of ham also go quite nicely with this pasta salad. This recipe can be easily adapted to serve more people. I’m one of those people that “eyeball” amounts because I mostly only cook for just me and my husband, it’s up to you how much you make.
1/2 lb tri-color rotini
sm. can black olives
medium package frozen (or fresh) broccoli florets
sm. jar artichoke hearts
3/4 cup creamy Italian dressing (I used Marie’s brand)
1. Follow package directions for cooking pasta, drain and set aside in a large bowl.
2. Cook broccoli according to package directions, add to pasta.
3. Add black olives, artichoke hearts and creamy dressing. Toss or stir until everything is covered with the dressing.
4. Place in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours to chill and then serve. Enjoy!
