NOT YOUR MAMA'S PASTA SALAD



Not Your Mama's Pasta Salad image

This is not your typical pasta salad, ergo the name I gave it. LOL My cousin brought this to a get together once and I was blown away. I have tweaked it some to my taste. For instance, she added garbanzo beans. I hate garbanzos so I omitted them. Don't be afraid to add things you love and drop others. You truly can't mess...

Categories     Pasta Sides

Number Of Ingredients 12

2 pkg rotini pasta, i like the tri color one
1 each red, green, yellow, and orange bell peppers
1 large red onion, sliced thin
1 can(s) black olives
2 c green olives
1 large cucumber, sliced
1 pkg cherry tomatoes, halved
1 lb pre-sliced hard salami, cut into bite size pieces
1 lb mozzarella or provolone, cubed (i prefer mozzarella)
1 small jars pepperoncini peppers, drained (whole or sliced)
2 small jars artichoke hearts, sliced in half lengthwise
1-2 bottle italian dressing

Steps:

  • 1. Cook pasta. Rinse in cold water to cool. Drain well.
  • 2. In a very large bowl, mix all ingredients together. Add dressing. If you are not serving until the next day, I recommend withholding the tomatoes, cucumber and cheese until shortly before serving, to prevent them from getting too soft or mushy. As this sits, especially if you prepare it the night before, you will find it soaks up the dressing and you will need to add more. Start with one bottle of dressing and go from there. You want it coated well, but not sitting in a pool of dressing.
  • 3. Note: I believe my cousin used kalamata olives. I like them ok, but I love green olives, so I use green olives in their place. Experiment with the varieties you love! Enjoy! P.S. If you want a healthier version, omit the salami and/or use chopped chicken breast.

NOT YOUR USUAL PASTA SALAD



Not Your Usual Pasta Salad image

I created this salad because I wanted something with a little kick and a lot of texture and taste. This is a recipe you can tweak to make it your own. It keeps well in fridge and is best served cold as a side dish. You can add diced ham or even a can of chunky tuna to make a complete meal.
