Super Simple Pasta Salad

1 lb. any shape pasta
1/2-1 entire bottle Bernstein's Light Cheese Fantastico salad dressing
3 carrots, peeled and chopped
1/2 English cucumber, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 pkg. crumbled Feta cheese or 1 pkg Feta cheese, diced
1 bell pepper, any color, seeded and chopped
1 small pkg. cherry tomatoes, rinsed and halved
1 small can sliced black olives, drained
1 cup green onions, rinsed and chopped

1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, rinse well, and chill. If you're short on time, rinse in cold water so it's so no longer warm to the touch.
2. Combine pasta, veggies, and cheese in a large bowl.
3. Toss with enough dressing to coat. Note: if you're making this ahead of time, the pasta will absorb dressing as it sits in the fridge, so you'll probably need more dressing right before serving.
