Pasta Salad

Feels like Spring today so I made pasta salad and plan to grill tonight! I love pasta salad with grilled food. This recipe is pretty simple but very good. Give this a try and you will make it again and again. Well, that is "What's Cookin" on Beaty's Creek today.

1 English Cucumber-diced
1 container Cherry Tomatoes-slice in half
1 can black olives-drained and sliced in half
1 bunch green onions-sliced
1 pound pasta shape of your choice-boiled,drained and cooled
3 cups Paul Newman's Ranch Dressing
Salt and Pepper- to taste
2 T Lemon Pepper

Place cooled pasta in a large bowl and add all of the veggies and stir. Now add your seasoning and 2 cups of dressing, stir until well coated. Place in fridge for a couple of hours. Right before serving add remaining 1 cup of dressing to moisten it up. We like crushed Nacho Cheese Doritos on top of ours.
