Pasta Salad

With summer now in full swing, I thought I would share my go-to recipe for BBQ’s, camp outs and potlucks. This pasta salad is so yummy and so easy to make. I usually make it the night before so it has time to sit and absorb all of the dressing goodness. I’ve also doubled and tripled this recipe for larger crowds.

Ingredients:

Rotini Pasta

Cherry or Grape Tomatoes

Bell Pepper

Olives

Shredded Cheese

Italian Dressing

*Sometimes I will add cubed meat, such as ham or turkey to make it a little more filling.

Cook the pasta according to the package instructions, drain and let cool. I usually add a little bit of the Italian dressing to the pasta when I let it cool so they don’t all stick together. Then just add the remaining ingredients and thoroughly stir to mix everything up. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
