The Best Pasta Salad in the World

I was lucky enough to be served this dish at a birthday party, and I insisted on getting a copy of the recipe.  I could eat it for every meal!  It's lightly sweet, but still a bit tangy, and oh soo satisfying.

I'm posting this recipe so I have it with me whenever I go to the grocery store.

Stacy's Pasta Salad:
1lb penne noodles
1.5c oil
1.5c red wine vinegar
1.5c sugar
1 Tbl. minced onion
1 Tbl. parsley flakes
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder or 4 fresh cloves
1.5 tsp. pepper

4 cucumbers
1 lg green pepper
1 lg red bell pepper
1 lg red onion

Cook noodles 10-15 min.  Mix oil, vinegar, sugar, minced onion, parsley, salt, garlic, and pepper together.  Add noodles rinsed and drained.  Add cucumbers halved and sliced.  Add red onion thinly sliced.  Add both bell peppers thinly sliced.  Mix it all together in large bowl. 

You can eat it immediately, but it is better if left overnight in the refrigerator so that everything steeps into a delicious brew.  Yum!
