Italian Pasta Salad

This is an extremely easy salad recipe, great for in-a-rush weekday dinners. It is also really good! I like to use tri-colour rotini for this, because it adds colour, but you can use any kind of pasta. And add any kind of vegetables too instead of the suggestions here – whatever you have in the fridge. If you have leftover chicken or ham, chop and add that too, then you’ve got a whole meal.
