Pizza Pasta Salad

Ingredients

1 (12 ounce) package garden spiral noodles, cooked and cooled
1 cup pepperoni slices, halved (more to taste)
1 can black olives, drained well
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, cubed
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 cup diced green or red pepper
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 bunches green onions, sliced
1 1/2 – 2 cups zesty Italian dressing (I use Olive Garden)*, divided use

Directions

Toss together the noodles, pepperoni, olives, cheeses, peppers, tomatoes, and green onion.  Stir in 1 cup dressing.  Refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight to allow pasta to soak up flavors.  When ready to serve you will need to add more dressing as needed.

Note: Olive Garden dressing packs a lot of zesty flavor as you know. It is now in my Walmart and Kroger. If you can’t find it, you may want to add a tablespoon of dry Italian Dressing Mix to your regular Italian Dressing.

  1. When I make this I add the cheese right before serving, otherwise its texture is compromised.
