Summer Macaroni Salad

2lbs Macaroni Twists
2 Green Peppers
1 large Onion
1 Large Carrot
Black Olives (optional)
Grated Parmesean Cheese
Hidden Valley Italian Dressing(comes in pkgs)

Mix Italian Dressing according to package directions then chill in fridge.Boil twists just till aldante and rinse in cold water. Dice onion and green pepper and set aside.Drain black olives.
Mix all ingredients together except carrot, dressing and parmesean cheese in large bowl (I use a tupperware with a lid). Once mixed, add the Italian Dressing, mixing thoroughly.After making sure everything is covered with the dressing shake on the parmesean cheese liberally and mix again. Keep adding & stirring in the cheese until you can still see it mixed in with macaroni salad or unitl you like what you see. When finished use vegetable peeler to shave carrot peelings on top as a garnishment(nice color too).ENJOY. My family raves about this ALL year but it is especially good with a bar-b-q!
