You will need:
One (1) twelve-ounce package of that colorful rotini pasta (or bulk-bin equivalent)
One (1) can of great northern beans
Two (2) cans of small pitted black olives
One (1) red bell pepper
Three (3) cans of readymade three-bean salad (two if you want less intense "three-beanyness")
While your pasta is boiling dice the bell pepper and drain the olives and great northern beans. (be sure you don't drain the three-bean salad by mistake-- eeeek!) When the pasta is done, dump it in a colander and rinse in cold water. Be sure it's well-drained before you put it in your (hopefully large) salad bowl. Add the other ingredients. Stir. Enjoy! I like my cold salads to be rather chilly, so I put it in the fridge for a while before serving.
*it's actually an expansion of a salad my mom has been known to make, although hers just consisted of three-bean salad and pasta.
