Okay, so I wanted to partake in the SoCal Lady Bloggers 4th of July Potluck! It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to contribute until I was at the grocery store earlier today. Then all the ingredients appeared in my cart, and away I went to make it at home.
This is seriously my all time favorite pasta salad, and many of you have most likely seen this recipe floating around. Even when I turned over my bag of pepperoni’s there was a variation of the recipe on the back
Ingredients in what you’ll need:
8 oz Bottle Italian Dressing (pick your favorite)
8 oz block of cheese (I chose Extra Sharp, but a lot recommend provolone)
1 Package Garden Rotini Pasta
1 Package Pepperoni (the grocery store has pepperoni mini’s now! how awesome is that!)
1 small can of sliced black olives
Really, that’s all you need!
First Step: Boil the pasta according to directions on the box.
While the pasta is boiling, chop up the block of cheese into square blocks.
In a small bowl, combine the cheese, italian dressing, olives, and pepperoni together. Mix together.
Drain Pasta, let cool down for about 10 minutes, or run under cold water then add to the mixture above. Stir.
Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours prior to serving, and voila, my all time favorite pasta salad that I love having during the summer, and especially for 4th of July festivities.
