Rainbow Pasta Salad

This recipe is posted for Vange, who reminded of this recipe recently. Over the years I’ve changed it up a bit, sometimes making it more of a Greek Pasta Salad by adding feta cheese and using Greek Dressing, or mixing it with a sundried tomato dressing.

  • 3 – 4 cups vegetable pasta
  • 2 chopped tomatoes 
  • 1/4 cup cucumber, sliced
  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • ½ cup sugar ( I prefer less)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  1. Cook pasta according to instructions on package. Do not over-cook. Cool. 
  2. Mix dressing ingredients and then mix with pasta and vegetables.
  3. Refrigerate and serve cold. Serves 8-10
