Cold Pasta Salad Recipe

1 packet of 7 seas Italian salad dressing mix
1 packet of 7 seas garlic & herb salad dressing mix
Cooking Oil per salad dressing mix directions
Vinegar per salad dressing mix directions
Water per salad dressing mix directions
1 & 1/2 boxes of pasta (any pasta, although bite sized like bow ties, rotini, radiatore or shells work best,)
Approximately 2 cups of broccoli, cut in pieces, frozen or fresh is fine
Approximately 2 cups of carrots, cut in pieces, frozen or fresh is fine
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 – 1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 t of onion powder
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
(these last 3, the measurements are approximate.)
mix 1 of the Seven Seas dressing packets, following package directions but increasing by half the oil, vinegar & water & stir or shake up, then add the second packet of dressing mix into the dressing & shake/stir again. (It’s tastier if you do this part a day or 2 before making the salad)
cook the pasta, broccoli & carrots,
cool pasta & veggies & mix well
pour dressing on pasta/veggie mix & stir well.
Add the onion powder, salt & pepper, (those measurements are a guess, I just add until it tastes right & for it to taste right, it needs to be just a little stronger in taste than you would normally want it to taste)
Stir in the mayonnaise & the grated Parmesan cheese (I use a lot of cheese, probably closer to a whole cup)
Chill in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve, for best results, make the day/night before you want to eat/serve it.
