What’s in spaghetti pasta salad?
Pasta – This pasta salad is designed to use classic spaghetti, but you can use any type of pasta that you like.
Lots of veggies – Like the pasta, you can jazz this pasta salad up with any combination of vegetables that you like, but it tastes best with cherry tomatoes, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, cucumber, and red onion.
Parmesan cheese – Cheese is a must in any salad (pasta or not), and this recipe goes a milder route with grated parmesan.
Salad supreme seasoning – Fans of this seasoning already know the great flavor it brings, and those that haven’t experienced yet it will soon discover what a great garnish it is for a variety of foods, not just salads. You can substitute for your own favorite mild seasonings if you want, but I highly recommend giving this one a shot.
Italian dressing – Whether you use store-bought or homemade dressing, this is a staple for bringing all of the flavors together.
