Someone on another forum asked how to make an easy, cheap pasta salad, so I threw my recipe in:You'll Need
-Frozen Mixed Veggies (your choice, I like the pea and carrot one, but something with bell peppers would be great as well)
-Italian Dressing of your choiceMake It
Boil pasta according to the directions. When pasta is 2 minutes shy of being done, add the frozen veggies. Drain in a colander, add dressing to taste, and cool. Add dressing before it cools to make it easier to mix by preventing the pasta from sticking together.
Depending on the pasta you get, this will cost very little. You can get 2lbs of pasta for about $2, 1lb of mixed veggies for $1-2, and you can find Italian dressing at a damn dollar store
