are parties this is what I'm asked to make 90 percent
of the time. I tend not to like most pasta salad's because
I'm not a fan of bottled dressings. The dressing is what makes
this. It's so good. You can add turkey instead of pepperoni.
1 box rotini pasta
6 ounces pepperoni, diced
6 ounces provolone cheese, diced
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 of a English cucumber, thinly sliced
1/2 of a green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 of a red bell pepper, chopped
black olives, "optional"
1/4 cup fresh parsley
1/4 cup of grated Parmesan
1/2 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup of red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard seed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1) Cook pasta and drain. Rinse with cold water, set aside.
2) In a large bowl, mix the cooled pasta with all the salad
3) Mix the dressing well and pour over pasta salad and mix.
4) Cover and chill for 6 hours.
