Crunchy asian-style pasta salad

This was really good and a great way to use those pasta salads you get on great deals!

1box Betty Crocker® Suddenly Salad® classic pasta salad mix
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

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.

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