Hoff's Summer Pasta Salad

Hoff's Summer Pasta Salad
Yields: Around 13 cups
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free

  • 1lb Whole Wheat Pasta
  • 1 Zucchini (chopped)
  • 1 Yellow Squash (chopped)
  • 1 15 oz can Beans (rinsed & drained)
  • 1 2.25 oz can Sliced Black Olives (rinsed & drained)
  • 1 cup Red Onion (chopped)
  • 1 bottle Fat Free Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 1 packet Zesty Italian Salad Dressing Mix

  1. Cook pasta according to box directions
  2. Combine all ingredients in a very large mixing bowl, mixing until everything is coated well with the dressing and seasonings
  3. Allow at least in a hour in the fridge for the flavors to blend before serving

My2Cents: I use Maple Grove Farms of Vermont dressing because it does not contain oil.  I also use Good Season's seasoning packet because it is dairy-free and oil-free.  Typically, I use whole wheat spiral pasta for this salad, but bow tie works just as well.  Use any bean you like, I tend to favor white beans for this dish.  Try substituting cucumber for the zucchini/squash.
