Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is one of my favorite dishes to meal prep for lunches or bring to a big gathering! With the weather warming up, it’s time to have a backyard BBQ or maybe a pool party and this dish will be a big hit! And a little advice, you do not need to wait to be invited to a picnic or potluck to get some pasta salad magic in your life!

Prep time: 10 min | Cook time: 12 mins | Total time: 25 mins

Ingredients (5-6 servings)

  • 1 box of tri-colored rotini pasta

  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 1 English cucumber

  • Mozzarella cheese block

  • Pepperoni 

  • Olive Garden Signature Italian dressing (measure with heart)

  • Italian seasoning

  • Salt & pepper

 

Steps

  1. Cook pasta according to the box.

  2. While pasta is cooking, we’ll chop up the rest of our ingredients. I like to dice my ingredients into bite-size pieces and we’re aiming for about the same amount of all the chopped ingredients. 

  3. When pasta is done, rinse it with cold water to help it not stick together.

  4. Add all your chopped veggies, as well as the mozzarella and pepperoni to the pasta. 

  5. Pour in your dressing, mix it all together, and don’t forget to season!

  6. ENJOY!
