I love the versatility of pasta salad, especially in the summer. It makes a great side dish for any cookout or regular weeknight meal. This recipe could be modified in a hundred different ways. It is a very quick dish to make as well which makes it that much better. I actually whipped this recipe up in about 15 minutes on Saturday night, right before we headed over to the campfire.
1 box tri-colored rotini or any other pasta that you have handy
1 bottle of Italian dressing
2 diced tomatoes
1 package salami (pepperoni would be wonderful too)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tbs dried Italian herb blend
Boil pasta until al dente. Drain pasta and rinse with cold water. Meanwhile, chop up tomatoes and salami into bite size pieces. Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Note; you probably won't need the entire bottle of dressing, use only as much as you prefer! Chill until ready to serve.
