Quick & easy zesty crab salad

Something cool for warmer weather, perhaps?

1 lb imitation crab meat (best is in the refrigerated seafood section of your grocery store)
1 medium tomato, diced (or about 3/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved)
1 small cucumber, diced (optional)
1/2 c frozen peas, uncooked (optional)
about 2 c uncooked macaroni or rotini or shells
1/2 c spicy ranch dressing

1. Cook pasta according to package directions.  2. While pasta is cooking, flake imitation crab meat chunks.  3. Drain pasta, and stir in frozen peas, then rest of ingredients.  4. Refrigerate until cool.

This is great when it's too hot to want to eat.  Mix up everything but the pasta and keep in the fridge to add to Kraft Easy Mac packets from the microwave (just leave out the cheese), for when it's too hot to turn on the stove.
