  • Mix tomato sauce, Italian dressing, basil, and oregano together in a large bowl. Add pasta, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, and red onion; toss. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, about 2 hours.

Cook's Notes:

Use 1 teaspoon dried basil and 1 teaspoon oregano instead of fresh, if desired.

You can add shredded or crumbled cheese (any kind and as much as you like.)
