cucumber pea pasta saladHere’s a quickie pasta salad for when your short on time,  or like today here in Oregon, it’s way too hot to be in the kitchen for more than 5 minutes.

(For the most part, this is from a Taste of Home recipe..but of course a few adaptations have jumped into the bowl.)

8 ounces uncooked medium shell pasta

8 oz package frozen peas, thawed

1/2 cucumber, halved and sliced (peel if desired)

1 small yellow squash, sliced

1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced

1/2 cup ranch salad dressing

black pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. Drain again.

In a large bowl, combine the cucumber, squash, peas, and onion. Add the ranch dressing and a bit of black pepper. Mix well.

Add the pasta, and toss to coat.

Cover and chill for a couple hours before serving.

Whew, we’re done. Thank goodness, it’s hot in here!
