Very easy Pasta Salad

We got invited to some friends for dinner last night and were asked to bring a side dish. So this is what we decided on. It was super yummy!!

Very Easy Pasta Salad

1 pound box thin spaghetti
2-3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp dried basil
1/2 red onion, chopped
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 bag salad shrimp (optional)
1/2 C shredded parmesan cheese

Cook spaghetti as directed on package. Drain.
In the meantime, mix olive oil, garlic and basil in a large serving bowl. Add tomatoes and onions. Once pasta is ready add it and stir. Finally add the salad shrimp and toss lightly. Top with Parmesan cheese. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

*the longer this one sits the better it gets. all the flavors meld together and it just gets so yummy! this dish is perfect for an outside gathering because you don't have to worry about it spoiling. *
