Perfect Pasta Salad

I thought that this pasta salad recipe would be great to post just before the holiday weeked.  Most of us will be spending lots of time with friends and/or family this weekend, which mostly likely means there will be lots of FOOD!!  The thing I love about this recipe is that it is simple to make and does NOT have mayo in it.  I am just not a big fan, so any pasta or potato salad that has mayo in it, is never consumed around here!  Anyway, enough blabbing, here's the recipe...

Perfect Pasta Salad
By: Melanie H.

1 box rotini pasta (or any other shape)
4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
3-4 Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
1 tsp. Sugar
1/3 c. Parmesan Cheese
Diced Veggies (anything you'd like...Carrots, red peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, brocolli, red onion, etc...)
Zesty Italian Dressing

Cook and cool pasta noodles.  Coat noodles with olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, pepper and parmesan cheese.  Add diced veggies and pour 1/2 bottle of Italian dressing onto pasta salad.  Mix salad and top with more parmesan cheese.
