  • Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Meanwhile, heat 2 Tbsp. dressing in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add vegetables and garlic; cook 5 min., stirring frequently.
  • Drain pasta. Reserve 1/2 cup of the remaining dressing. Add remaining dressing to vegetable mixture in skillet along with the pasta; mix lightly. Spoon into large bowl. Add reserved dressing and cheese; toss to coat. Top with basil.

Preparing Perfect Pasta

Follow the package directions to ensure that enough water is used for cooking the pasta. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente (tender but still a little firm to the bite), stirring frequently. To prevent pasta from sticking, add it slowly to plenty of boiling water and stir frequently while cooking. Adding oil to the cooking water is not recommended because some sauces may not cling to pasta coated with oil.
