Italian Picnic Pasta Salad

Total time: 35 minutes
     This is the 'classic' or original (close to it, anyway) Pasta Salad.  The original called for bottled "Italian Dressing" but I prefer to make my own.  It's a great salad to take to a pot-luck picnic or to plan on leftovers.  For two I would simply cut everything in half.
