My mother spent some time in a the hospital a while back. I was there often to visit and found myself eating at the hospital cafeteria almost every day. A couple of times a week they offered a pasta salad that I fell in love with! Of course, I was on a mission to duplicate the recipe!

1 package (16 ounces) of pasta - feel free to get creative on the shape
4 cups diced vegetables (uncooked - zucchini, broccoli, red onion, tomato, celery)
1 cup feta cheese (more if you would like)
1 cup Italian dressing
Cook pasta according to package directions. Rinse with cold water until pasta has is chilled.
In a large bowl, toss pasta with remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate over night. Add additional dressing if needed and toss before serving.

I found this Christmas pasta and decided it would be super cute for a dish to pass over the holidays.
Update: the Christmas version was good but I really only needed one package for the time of the year. I can't wait until summer parties!
