ammmmazing and easy Pasta Salad



This may not be the most original pasta salad, or the most fancy, but is my go to pasta salad recipe. DH and I love it, and we have been found running to the grocery store on random weekend nights just to buy the ingredients to make it. My FIL has been making this recipe for as long as I have known my husband (eep 10 years) and it never gets old!!!

TIP: Stock up on the seasoning early, because in the summer it is almost always sold out from the stores!!!


  • 1 lb box of rotini pasta… some times I use the tri color pasta to make it prettier!
  • 1 block sharp cheddar cheese, chopped into cubes
  • 1 bock monterey jack cheese, chopped into cubes
  • Celery, diced
  • Carrots, chopped
  • any other veggies you like- sometimes we add broccoli, which is good. (Total of about 3.5 cups veggies is good)
  • 1 cup Kraft Seven Seas Italian Dressing (or your favorite Italian Dressing)
  • 4 TBS McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning
  • Depending on the day or my mood, we sometimes add diced ham or chopped up pepperoni.


  1. Boil pasta according to package directions, rinse with cold water.
  2. Throw all ingredients except seasoning and dressing into large bowl with pasta, and mix well.
  3. Add salad dressing and mix well
  4. Add seasoning last…. this way bits of the seasoning stick to the cheese (YUM!)
  5. ENJOY!
