My hubs decided which recipe I should make (well, I narrowed down the choices) and this is what he picked! Its super easy and very delicious!
Pizza Pasta Salad
serves 10 (or more)
3 cups penne pasta (or your favorite pasta), cooked & cooled
3 small-medium tomatoes, chopped
15 slices hard salami, finely chopped
1 cup mozzarella cheese (shredded, cubed or how ever you want it)
1/2 cup fresh basil, sliced
1/2 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup light balsamic vinaigrette dressing
salt & pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl. Refrigerate for one hour to let the flavors combine. Serve and enjoy!
Original recipe inspiration came from here. I adapted it for our tastes and what I had in my frig!
Next time, I think I will substitute turkey pepperoni for the hard salami.
Try it and let me know what you think!
