Zesty Pasta Salad

With the warmer weather, I'm getting ready for grill season. We had planned to grill out this past Sunday but rain prevented us from doing so. Even with baked chicken, our meal was light and summery thanks to this yummy pasta salad.

Zesty Pasta Salad

1 box Rotini pasta

1 container grape tomatoes

1 bunch broccoli

1 small can sliced black olives

1 bottle zesty italian dressing

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, rinse and let cool. While pasta is cooking/cooling slice grape tomatoes in half, cut broccoli into bite size pieces, drain and rinse black olives. Toss tomatoes, broccoli, olives and dressing with pasta. Chill for at least 2 hours. Serve and enjoy.

I love this pasta salad. My daughter asked me to get the recipe for this from one of the ladies at our church. We've been enjoying it ever since.
