Pizza Pasta Salad
Inspired by Caramel Potatoes
1 lb bowtie pasta, cooked and cooled (you can use any pasta you want)
1/2 cup pepperoni slices, I cut mine in half
1 /2 cup ham or Canadian Bacon cubed
4 oz Mozzarella cheese, cubed
1 can black olives, sliced
1 medium tomato, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced small
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 - 2 cups Zesty Italian Dressing (Olive Garden's is very good!!)**
Toss together the pasta, pepperoni, ham, cheeses, tomatoes and onions. Stir in 1 cup of the Italian Dressing. Refrigerate at least 3 hours or over night. Just before you are ready to serve toss with more dressing as needed.
**I made a copycat Olive Garden dressing recipe. It was delicious on this salad.
Nice change to my normal pizza fix!!
