Caitlin's Pasta Salad

My roommate Caitlin has been making this salad for years and everyone LOVES it! A pasta salad sounded hard to me, but this is one of the simplest recipes and can be embellished however you want. This salad is perfect for showers, buffets, luncheons, or just school lunches. It makes a ton and saves really well in the fridge.

Pasta Salad
two bags pasta noodles (recommend rotini noodles, colored for presentation)
one bottle of Italian dressing
one bottle of Parmesan cheese
any vegetables - tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, onions, olives, etc.
pepperoni optional
-cook the pasta until tender; drain, place in LARGE bowl; add a little dressing to prevent noodles from sticking to each other; place in fridge until vegetables are ready
-cut all vegetables while noodles are cooking
-once vegetables ready, remove noodles from fridge and add vegetables
-add the dressing and cheese until desired consistency
-serve and enjoy! Store extras in fridge
