*slaps tupperware container* This bad boy can fit so many ingredients in it.

What you need

  • A pot for boiling pasta
  • Some sort of container for your food to reside in
  • 1 package tri-color rotini
  • ~2 cups of some sort of dressing. I use a bottle of low-fat Italian dressing, but you do you.
  • Red onion
  • Bell pepper
  • Parsley
  • (optional) Other accouterments, such as cheese, cherry tomatoes, salami.

Do this

  • Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil
  • While the water is boiling, chop your vegetables and herbs and meats and whatever else you’re putting in this jawn
  • Cook pasta according to the box until al-dente, or just under. Your pasta is going to soak up the dressing and flavors from the rest of the ingredients, so don’t over cook it.
  • Drain the pasta and rinse with cold water
  • Stir in the dressing and whatever you just chopped up
  • Plop that stuff in some sort of storage container and stuff it in the fridge. Give it a good stir or shake every once in a while until the pasta has absorbed the dressing.

    If you used salami and have a cat, you must give it a little salami. I don’t make the rules.
