Catalina Pink Pasta Salad Recipe

This is one of my family's recipes that takes me back to summer barbecues we had when I was a kid. Now, I often make it at my own barbecues and everyone is always surprised to see a pink pasta salad! It's not just the lighting in the photo above, it's actually pink! Bet you haven't seen or had a pasta salad like this one before and if you have, then you know how good this is.

1 (16oz) bottle Catalina dressing

red onion, very thinly sliced
10 hard boiled eggs, sliced

3. Mix dressing, mayo, olives and onions. Add pasta then lightly fold in eggs.
