Perfect Summer Pasta Salad - Della Devoted

Perfect Summer Pasta Salad

Do you have a go to favorite Summer food that you like to fix for most meals? Mine would be Pasta Salad. It's great for Cookouts, Family Picnics, Church Dinners and etc.  My husband could seriously eat it for dinner on a daily basis. I have grown tired of the same old boring pasta salad over the years, so I've learned to perfect the recipe. My husband says that he will never return to the basic bland Pasta Salad and I don't blame him. This recipe is far from boring. You may have even tried it yourself before, but this is my spin on the Perfect Summer Pasta Salad. Keep in mind that this recipe is enough for a double batch. I always make extra so that I can give some to my dad and brother as well.

2- 12 ounce boxes of Tri-Color Rotini (You can also use spaghetti noodles instead of Rotini)
1- 16 ounce bottle of Zesty Italian Dressing
5 cucumbers , cubed and chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped or diced
1/2 cup of Green Olives stuffed with minced pimentos
About 15-20 Slices of Pepperoni cut up in small pieces
1 small onion chopped in small pieces

* You can also add bacon bits and shredded or parmesan cheese. I also like Green peppers in my pasta salad as well. The more ingredients, the better!

Cook Rotini for 11 minutes according to directions. Gradually add half of the Italian dressing. Toss in the rest of the ingredients. Pour the remaining dressing over the salad.  Chill for at least an hour. Serve and Enjoy!
