How to Make Family's Favorite Pasta Salad
- Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse under cold water until pasta is cool.
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl, leaving some of the cheese to sprinkle on top.
- Chill several hours to let the flavors blend. Better if left to sit overnight.
- Very versatile as you can add more of what you like, less of what you don't like. Can easily double by adding more veggies and 1/2 of another package of pasta. I have even used grilled chicken instead of pepperoni, or left the meat out completely.
