 Yummy pasta salad
 All measurements are approximate (sorry)
 1 cup tri-colored spiral macaroni
 1 cup sliced carrots
 1 cup green beans cut into 2 inch pieces
 1 small sweet onion cut into half circles
 1/2 cup frozen peas
 1/2 cup frozen corn
 1/2 yellow squash, cut into medium sized cubes
 1/2 red pepper sliced thinly
 1/2 orange pepper sliced thinly
 other interesting veg that you like.
 1/2 cruet of jennie's ff good seasons dressing mixture (see below)
 Cook macaroni to al-dente.  boil the carrot for a very short time in
 water just until it's slightly soft, do the same with the green beans
 and the yellow squash. Defrost the corn and peas or stick them in the
 boiling water for a second (frozen stuff next to noodles does
 something wierd). Mix everything together in a big mixing bowl and
 refrigerate a couple of hours, preferably overnight.
 Jennie's ff good season't dressing mixture
 Buy _regular_ good seasons dressing mix (I assume it's fat free -- just spices,
 			right? I'll be really upset if it isn't)
 follow the directions on the package to make it, using interesting
 (taragon or thyme eg) vinegars, **and** instead of adding oil, add a
 50/50 mixture of (a possibly different) vinegar and water. Shake like
 crazy. My husband who hates f f stuff as a rule, loves this dressing.
 It's not globby like commercial ff italia n.
