Recipe Tips

As you've probably experienced, most non-creamy Italian dressings separate -- you always have to shake-it-up to blend it together. Not so with fat-free Italian dressing. All the tasty little bits of herbs and spices stay completely blended all the time, and that is why we use it in this recipe. All the goodies in the dressing cling to the pasta and veggies in each bite -- it even tastes good cold!
