Pandora's Pasta Salad

Honoring the Greek goddess Pandora.




macaroni or any other type of shell noodles (1 lb.)

cherry tomatoes or diced tomatoes

diced pickle or fresh cucumber

diced black olives

marinated artichoke hearts
(the kind from a jar, remember how Pandora loves to open things!)

salad dressing of your choice
*Creamy Cucumber or Ranch are superb*

Cook noodles according to directions. (Pandora was never known for her patience so cheating with the microwave is permitted!)

While the pasta is cooking, prepare all the other ingredients, dicing and chopping as you go.   

Smother with the dressing. Pandora says the more the better!

Once the pasta is done, drain and rinse thoroughly with cold water until the pasta is cool. Place pasta in a serving bowl and mix in all the other ingredients.

Chill in the fridge for at least one hour before serving.

If, like the goddess Pandora, you're impatient . . . just follow your impulse . . . it's still pretty good served luke-warm!
