 i don't think we add anything special. dh doesn't like veggies so its just noodles, pepperoni chunks, colby jack cheese and italian dressing. and then i'm lucky if i open the container the next day and theres any pepperoni or cheese left.

i like to cut up cherry tomatoes and normally green and red peppers and put them in dishes on the side so i can just toss some in my pasta salad when i get some.

Instead of dressing, mix it with dill dip.

 Cherry tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, edamame, tri-color pasta, italian dressing.  DELISH!  Sometimes I add ham or cheese...
