"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

1 box of pasta of choice (Tri colored rotini makes a pretty display)
1 bottle of Italian Dressing
1 bottle of parmesan cheese

1 small can of olives (green and/or black)
1/2 can of peas
Other types of cheese

Boil the pasta until perfectly done (taste the pasta to check if done... do not throw against the wall to test if it sticks!!). Drain the pasta and pour into a large bowl.

If serving warm: Pour the italian dressing onto the pasta until pasta is fully covered but little is standing at the bottom of the bowl. Mix in cheese until taste desired. Cover the top with a thin layer of the cheese and serve.

If serving cold: Follow directions for serving warm but put into the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving. Cover the top with a thin layer before serving.

Add olives, peas, and/or other cheese to taste if desired.

Very quick and easy!
