2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon white sugar
In the bottom of a large bowl, combine the salad dressing, red wine vinegar, and white sugar. Mix well. Stir in the pasta and the other ingredients making sure to mix well to coat all the pieces in the dressing. If the mixture seems dry feel free to add more salad dressing. Season to taste with the garlic powder, salt and pepper and paprika.
