Crunchy Asian Pasta Salad

1box Betty Crocker® Suddenly Salad® classic pasta salad mix (We have liked the Greek flavor the best, if you can find it... I have also used off brands)
1package (3 oz) Oriental-flavor ramen noodle soup mix
3tablespoons sugar
3tablespoons vegetable oil
2tablespoons white vinegar
2tablespoons water
1tablespoon soy sauce
3cups coleslaw mix
1cup snow pea pods, strings removed, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2cup sliced almonds, toasted
1can (15 oz) mandarin orange segments, drained (I leave these out & add sliced black olives)

Empty Pasta mix into 3-quart saucepan 2/3 full of boiling water. Gently boil uncovered 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Drain pasta; rinse with cold water. Shake to drain well.

In large bowl, stir together seasoning mixes from pasta mix and soup mix, sugar, oil, vinegar, water and soy sauce. Add pasta, coleslaw mix, pea pods, almonds and oranges; toss to combine.

Just before serving, coarsely crush dry noodles from soup mix; stir into pasta mixture. Serve immediately, or refrigerate.
