Pasta Supreme


I have a pal that brings this to a potluck every Christmas, and I look forward to eating it, and wait for her dish to come in so I can give it a whirl or 17 on my fork. I finally asked for the recipe, despite the possible impact on my calorie count, but....I remembered I gave up on counting in about 1987...or at least accurately counting, and asked anyway. It's really simple, and another twist on the age ol' pasta salad, which is always goodness. It's pretty much the recipe on the back of the spice used in this dish, but I had never heard of this spice until she gave me this recipe, sooooo...it's new in my box of recipes.
Recipe:
1 lb of spaghetti, cooked and drained
1 c. of Italian dressing
5 t. of Salad Supreme McCormmick spice mix (more or less, according to taste)
1 green bell pepper, julienned
1 purple onion, julienned
1 cucumber, cut thin
Chill over night,and serve cold.
*You can really toss whatever veggies in there that you want...because I know you needed my permission, but I like to stick to my friend's recipes 'exactly'...if I went off on my own I'd put dice a twinkie or something and toss it in the bowl and wonder why it didn't taste the same.

That looks and sounds just like the pasta salad that always makes the rounds at pot lucks here too. I really like it but never knew what the secret ingredient was, I'm going to pick up some of that McCormmick spice mix today!

My mom used to use the Salad Supreme all the time! I forgot all about it until I attended a birthday party and a spaghetti salad was served. I couldn't wait to serve it at my daughter's party since it's so easy and frugal! Perfect addition to the buffet table! :)
