Not Just Another Boring Pasta Salad

Okay, I have a confession to make.  I normally do not like pasta salad of any kind.  It's either too dry, or too...well, noodly for my taste.  But I decided to experiment and oh boy am I glad I did!  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.


2 Cups Elbow Macaroni, cooked to your desired texture
1 16 oz Can Olives, sliced (I prefer jumbo size)
1 16 oz Can Petite Diced Tomatoes, drained and rinsed
1 Pkg McCormick Gourmet Creamy Parmesan & Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Penne Seasoning Mix
1/3 Cup Miracle Whip
2/3 Cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Step 1

Cook your pasta.  I chose elbow macaroni, but you can use whichever you prefer.  When it's cooked to your preferred texture, whether soggy or firm, drain and rinse with cold water.  Set aside.

Step 2

Slice your olives and drain your tomatoes.  Make sure you rinse your tomatoes until they're clean, toss them into the same bowl as your noodles.

Step 3

Mix your Seasoning Mix, Miracle Whip and Olive Oil with a whisk.  Add to the bowl with the noodles, tomatoes and olives; mix it all together.  Cover tightly and let it sit in the fridge until cold.  Serve with your favorite chicken dish, or turkey burger, or whatever your heart desires!

*Note:  If you find that you don't care for the Seasoning Mix I've used, then choose another.  There's lots to choose from.
