My sister, Patty sent me this recipe so I had to try it. It is the best pasta salad recipe and so easy to make. I did change a few things from the recipe though when I made it. I made my own italian dressing and added a little balsamic vinegar to it. Turned out great. I hope you enjoy.

How To Make pizza pasta salad

  • 1
    Cook pasta according to package directions. I always cook mine al dente. Drain and cool. (I put ice in the bowl with the pasta to make it cool faster)
  • 2
    While pasta is cooking, prepare all other ingredients so they will be ready to add to the pasta when it is done.
  • 3
    Add all ingredients to the pasta and mix. Refrigerate and serve. I would say that this is better the second day, but I am not sure because we do not ever have any left over.
