This easy salad was great for a quick summer meal! We all loved it and have enough leftovers for lunches. I made a few minor changes to the original recipe. Instead of pepperoni, I used leftover chicken and feta cheese.
This kind of recipe drives me crazy because it's so vague, and I like recipes to be very specific so I don't mess up! It worked out ok, but I wish I knew how much pasta they usually make, for example. I used a box of tri-color because they don't sell that type of pasta in bags at my market. I also would like to know what kind of dressing everyone thinks is best. I used Newman's Own Family Style Italian, it worked pretty good, but it's so unhealthy to use the whole bottle!
I did not use an entire package of pepperoni, it seemed like too much, but I did add red onion, tiny broccoli florets, and garbanzo beans. Next time I would add feta cheese like "Ellie" suggested in the comments.
AWESOME! I didn't add the pepperoni or black olives, but I did add just about any other vegetable I could find. Broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cherry tomatoes...will make again. Thanks!
This was a very good pasta salad that we really enjoyed. My vegetables stayed crisp and we enjoyed the leftovers. It didn't get soggy - I'm not sure why. The only extra vegetable I added was diced carrots. Also, I didn't use an entire package of pepperoni. Thanks Karen for a great recipe!
This is a GREAT recipie! I used a box of Barilla's Fiori, little flower shaped pasta. DH ate a huge bowl with dinner and I finished what was left for breakfast. I added some raw summer squash, lightly steamed fresh green beans, some leftover corn cut off the cob. a chopped up fresh tomato, and chopped sweet-spicy red onion. This is my kind of recipie.
Very good recipe. Super easy. We needed to add some spices & extra salt & minced garlic to make it work for our family, but very good! Thanks!
This is a great pasta salad recipe. I like the combination of veggies used. I added some carrots. And of course, hubby loved the pepperoni.
I like to add diced tomatoes, cheese crumbles, and a lil parm cheese to this dish. Yum!! I love how flexable this recipe is, with great results everytime!
My DS asked me to bring a non-mayonaise pasta salad to his cookout. Made this and everyone raved over it. Will make it again, that's for sure.
Very yummy salad! I was low on ingredients, so i just used the pasta, celery and italian dressing. I also cubed some cheddar cheese and threw it in. Will definately make again! Very fast and easy.
