Pasta Salad

I needed to fix a quick light lunch the other day, and this is what I came up with. It is really good! You could also add bell pepper if you like.

Cook, drain, and rinse in cold water:
3 cups dry rotini noodles (not 3 cups after they are cooked--3 cups before cooking them)

Place in a bowl and mix in the following:
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 cucumber, chopped
1 small tomato, chopped
1/3 cup minced onion (adjust to taste)
1/2 cup whole black olives
1 cup mashed garbanzos

Mix the following for the dressing:
1/2 cup Italian dressing (I used the Italian dressing recipe below on this blog)
2 Tbsp. Vegenaise or other mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. dill
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix well. Chill to allow flavors to blend and serve.
(Mine didn't last long after it was made though!)
