pasta salad

i know there are like a million pasta salad recipes out there, but i really like this one. I am so excited for lighter cooler summer foods, this will be a weekly menu maker. i made it the other day and took a picture because it was so pretty and colorful, so i thought why now post it on here???
you will need:
one bag pasta- it's more fun with different colors

1 C oil
1/2 C red wine vinegar
1 C Parmesan
1 TBSP each: parsley, basil, garlic salt
red pepper flakes as desired
(i usually half this with one bag of pasta, but you will have to figure that one out depending on how much dressing you like, and if you don't feel up to making dressing, just open up a bottle of Italian dressing and that is yummy too!)

you may want to add:
chunks of mozzarella cheese, chicken, red or green peppers, onions, carrots, celery, peperoni, green onions, black olives...
there so many delicious possibilities, you really can't go wrong!
