Mama's Pasta Salad

In the summertime, Mama makes two different cold salads that we all love. One is her potato salad (and that one is just her special recipe that only she can make correctly). The other is her Pasta Salad. In honor of Mama, on Mother's Day this year, I want to share her recipe with you. Here is the recipe:

Mama's Pasta Salad

1 Box Tri-Colored Rotini Pasta, boiled for 10 minutes in salted water. Drain and pour cold water over it until noodles are cool. Set aside.

In a big mixing bowl, mix together:

2 small containers marinated artichokes, drained (reserving the liquid)

1/2 each, chopped red, green and yellow bell peppers

1/2 cup chopped green onion

2 cans drained slices olives

1 cup sliced, drained, marinated mushroom

Mix the veggies together and then add the cooked pasta. Then pour on a goodly bit of Zesty Italian Dressing and the juice from the marinated artichoke. Best if you let it sit a few hours or overnight. You might want to add a bit more dressing if it gets dry. Yumm!
