"A small drive-in dairy bar in our town which has been closed for some time used to make this...my kids missed it. I remembered they had the ingredients posted to a board in the drive-in for some reason, so I worked on trying to get it the way they prepared it. It's finally right and I thought I would share it. We like this at room temperature, but it certainly can be refrigerated."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (12 ounce) package
tri-color rotini pasta
red bell pepper, diced
finely diced sweet onion
1 (8 ounce) package
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Made this for a family dinner get together, everyone loved it. Used chunks of 5 different cheeses instead of the shredded and cut some grape tomatoes up rather than a whole tomato(stuff I had on hand), the rest the same. Tripled the recipe. Very good :)
This was good. Next time I may try it without the cheese, or with significantly less cheese, just based on my personal preference. I used grape tomatoes in lieu of a tomato. Thanks for sharing your recipe,ISLANDGIRLEJFAN!
A really good pasta salad with a lovely fresh flavor to it, which we all enjoyed quite a bit. I did use olive oil instead of vegetable oil, as well as diced grape tomatoes instead of one large tomato as they're both what I had on hand. I also shredded my own sharp cheddar instead of using pre-shredded as well, but it was still sharp cheddar so that's not a drastic difference. It was pretty easy to make and enjoyed by all, and I will definitely be making it again!
