In-A-Pinch Pasta Salad

Memorial Day has come and gone, and with it, most of the food I had prepared. Do you have picnic leftovers, too? Everything was gone, except for two red, white, and blue deviled eggs and hot dogs. I had five hot dogs leftover. I was tired of chips and pretzels, which is what we usually have with our doggies. I needed to find something else to pair with hot dogs without running out to the grocery store. I came up with my rendition of Italian Pasta Salad.

I made 1/2 of a box of large elbow macaroni and added to it whatever I could find in the refrigerator that I thought would go well with pasta. I used 1 cucumber, seeded and diced; about 12 grape tomatoes sliced in half, feta cheese, red onion, and Kalamata olives. I added some Italian dressing and stirred! Voila! You can use any kind of Italian dressing you like. and Make this pasta salad differently each time you make it, or make it the same way each time. Doesn’t matter which route you take, just make it. I was pretty pleased with the outcome of mine, and I think you will be happy with your creation as well! Comment below and tell me what you added to your pasta salad!
