This reminds me of the salad I sometimes get at the deli in Ingles. I left out the salami to make it vegetarian. I used Italian seasoning, and I used tri-colored shell macaroni. I did add some celery and extra black olives. Thanks! Made for Pick a Chef(PAC) 2011.
This is delicious. Just made up a batch for a pool party and I used penne since that's what I had in the house. I also mixed up a bottle of Good Seasons Italian dressing and used that and I added just a bit of red onion. I used the feta with basil and tomato. I did use the salad supreme as well. Easy and will make again. Lots of possibilities with this one.
Yummy! I didn't add the green pepper (personal taste), I used low fat salami, and did not add cheddar cheese. I also used canned diced tomato rinsed. Oh, I also added 1/2cup each, frozed peas and corn (just for color). It turned out great! Second servings all around :)
Loved this! Made exactly with salami and used red pepper as DH hates green pepper! Making second batch tonight! Can't go wrong here!
My family went absolutely CRAZY over this pasta salad! It is amazing and I wouldn't change one single thing about this recipe. Thank you so much for posting! I will be making it again and again!!
This was a very tasty pasta salad and presented well too. The colors of the fresh veggies mixed with the cream colored pastas made for a pretty bowl. The texture and flavors worked well together. I halfed the recipe and it still made a lot (see my picture). I made it as written down to the seasoning (Salad Supreme) she suggested and used Cardini's italian dressing. I normally don't like Feta but it was good in this salad. This would be great to take to a cookout, potluck or picnic. It is time consuming (prep was one hour) make pasta, cool the pasta, rinse it x2, cut all the veggies, shred the cheese, cut the pepperoni etc but it can be done the night before and then throw it all together.Definitely a good one CarrolJ! Glad the caterer from church allowed you to share. I will certainly make it again. Thanks for posting. Enjoy! ChefDLH
i love the tortellini & feta in this! i used a can of rotel diced tomatoes with chilis instead of fresh tomato. i didn't add the green pepper.
I made this salad yesterday for a 4th of July get-together. It was a complete hit, and I had three different people ask for the recipe. It is easy to make and I believe it serves more than the suggested 6-8 people, probably double that as a side dish. I made as directed except for using Roasted Red Pepper Italian dressing, which my husband bought by accident instead of regular Italian--but it turned out wonderfully. Will definitely make again, thanks for sharing.
Great pasta salad! I always get a ton of compliments on it. Just made it recently with a greek dressing and tastes just as good.
