Updated February 15, 2018

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) wagon wheel pasta or rotini pasta
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 cup reduced-fat Italian dressing
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dried oregano leaves or 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 5 roma (plum) tomatoes, coarsely chopped (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 large peeled or unpeeled cucumber, coarsely chopped (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 can (2 1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained

Steps

  • 1
    Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. Rinse with cold water; drain.
  • 2
    Mix tomato sauce, dressing, basil and oregano in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients; toss.
  • 3
    Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled but no longer than 48 hours.

  • Roma (plum) tomatoes are a perfect choice for pasta salads. Their meaty texture stands up to tossing without a lot of juice to make the salad soggy.
  • Make it a main dish: Stir in leftover cooked meat or a can of drained, rinsed beans.
