Italian Pasta Salad

(You won't believe how easy this is, and how delicious. Think of it when you have leftover meat or poultry, especially after Thanksgiving.) In a jar with tight fitting lid, combine oil, vinegar, salt, basil, hot pepper sauce, and garlic. Shake well to blend.

Combine linguini with remaining ingredients.

Pour dressing over salad; toss gently.

Cover and refrigerate overnight to blend flavors.
