  1. Start a pot of water to boil and cook your pasta up
  2. Strain your pasta and allow it to cool, I put mine in a bowl in the freezer to cool faster
  3. Start to chop up your veggies, you could also add more veggies if you want my family is just picky about veggies
  4. Once your pasta is cooled in a large bowl start to dump everything in a large bowl and mix well
  5. A lot of this can be to taste and changed up however your family will like it
  6. Refrigerate and serve cold
