Linkev's pasta salad

I decided to make a different pasta salad that you can have warm too. So I came up with this. I love it warm, but my husband likes it cold. If you try it you decide how you like it.

2 medium onions sliced thin
1 yellow squash 
1 zucchini 
1 pint grape tomatoes
1 lb Barilla tricolor pasta 
1 jar alfredo sauce
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon adobo
salt and black pepper to taste
virgin olive oil
Grated Parmesan cheese to garnish

Cook pasta according to directions. Drain and rinse with cold water place in a bowl add the alfredo sauce and stir well.

Cut onions into thin slices, rinse the zucchini and yellow squash and cut into small wedges, rinse grape tomatoes and cut in halves.

In a large skillet on medium to high heat oil enough to coat bottom, saute' onions until they begin to be translucent, 

add the zucchini and the yellow squash, cook for about 5 to 8 minutes. 

Add the grape tomatoes

Add all the spices  salt and black pepper to taste, stir well and cook stirring occasionally until vegetables are tender.

When done add the vegetables in the pasta mix well, 

top with grated cheese, you can serve it warm or refrigerate before serving.

You can also substitute the alfredo sauce to Italian dressing, add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup it depends of how strong the dressing is.

 This dish of pasta salad was made with the Italian salad dressing.
