Cook tri-color rotini per package instructions. Drain and set aside. Cover bowl with a towel until ready to use.
While pasta cooks, add canola oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Once oil is warm, add sausage, carrots, green pepper, and yellow onion to the skillet. Cook until sausage begins to brown and veggies are tender, about 8-10 minutes.
Add cooked pasta, sausage and veggies, and Italian dressing to a large bowl, then toss to coat.
If you'd like the pasta salad warm, serve immediately. If you'd like the pasta salad chilled, place in the refrigerator for 2 hours before serving.
