Garden Veggie Pasta Salad

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


4 servings

This recipe pleasantly proves that making pasta salad doesn't have to be a time-consuming task, thanks to the head start from bottled salad dressing.


  • 1-1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 celery rib, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain and rinse in cold water. In a large bowl, combine the macaroni, tomatoes, green pepper, celery and onions. In a small bowl, whisk the salad dressing, mayonnaise and pepper. Pour over salad; toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving.
