How to Make Pasta salad


  1. First i cook the pasta till done and drain and let cool.
  2. while pasta is cooking I cut up the meat and cheese in cubes..The amount is up to you, depending on how much you want in the salad. I try to keep it balanced by colors.Have also used cauliflower as well as the broccoli.Cut it up bite size pices..Another meat that is good in it is genoa salami. Also its good to use two kinds of cheese, I would use the sharp chedder and colby..
  3. When pasta is cooled mix all ingredients together and then add the Italian dressing. Add is slowly so you don't overpower the salad. You can always add more later...Enjoy
