My daughter, Katie, shared this delicious pasta salad with our family recently. It is a perfect choice for picnics, potluck gatherings, or just to keep in the fridge for lunch!

1 small purple onion, chopped very fine

1 red bell pepper, chopped very fine

1 cup distilled white vinegar

1 cup sugar

Cook rotini according to directions. Do not overcook. Drain and rinse with cold water. Mix rotini with marinade and finely chopped onion, pepper, and halved tomatoes.
