    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 225g vermicelli pasta or spaghetti
    • 125ml Italian salad dressing
    • 2 tomatoes, chopped
    • 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add pasta and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until al dente; drain and place into a large serving bowl. Toss with dressing and tomatoes. Top with Parmesan and serve.

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

    I thought this was excellent! I did alter the recipe a little by adding 1/2 cup of Basil/Pesto salad dressing, red bell peppers, cucumber, and black olives. This was SOOO good though! It goes well with just about any meal!  -  26 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I love this recipe. I just do a few additional things. I add broccoli, cauliflower, shredded carrot or basically any fresh vegetable I have available and add 1/2 bottle of Salad Supreme seasoning. If I don't have angel hair I use vermicelli or thin spaghetti. I make this for almost every get together and always come home with an empty bowl.  -  11 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    My brother-in-law called last minute tonight to invite us to a cook out. I was frantic to find something to take and didn't have time to run to the store. I came across this recipe and it required every thing I already had. It took no time to prepare and I didn't come home with any left over. Thank you!  -  26 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
