Hi, I'm Devra Gartenstein with Quirky Gourmet and today I'm going to show you how to make a five ingredient pasta salad. Now when I say five ingredient pasta salad I really mean five ingredients. A lot of people when they say five ingredients they don't count the salt, they don't count the pepper. So this is really the most basic pasta salad I can make. I have some Rotini pasta that I cooked ahead of time. So I cooked it until it was soft. I drained it and I ran some cold water through it to drain it and when you do that you rinse a lot of the starch off of it so it doesn't get nearly as sticky when you let it sit. Now if you cooked it way ahead of time you might want to add a little bit of oil to it but that would make it six ingredients. So here's the pasta. I'm going to add some chopped cucumber, some chopped tomato, some mayonnaise and some salt. And then I'm just going to toss that altogether and get everything coated with the mayonnaise. It's a nice creamy pasta salad and there you have the five ingredient pasta salad.
