Please enjoy my Simply Sunday on Saturday!
The other day, I had to plan for 40 Color Guards girls to have dinner for their home game. I was in charge and had 6 moms helping me. We each made 2 salads. I made the wonderful Buffalo Chicken Pasta which is on another post, HERE ,and then this Pasta Salad, which I am going to name "Loaded Pasta Salad". I got the idea off Pinterest, HERE, but added to it. Here is My step by step tutorial:
Here are the Ingredients I used:
16 oz pasta
8 oz Italian Salad Dressing- I used Kraft Zesty Italian
1/2 lb Salami cubed
1/2 lb Provolone cheese, cubed
3 oz sliced Pepperoni
Can of Black Olives
Jar of Pimentos- 4 oz
Red Grape Tomatoes
Green Pepper, Red Onion, Jarred Pepperocinis
I bought this Wacky Mac Pasta because I thought it would be fun. It was a little short in the ounces so I added some Vegetable Colored Garden Rotini Pasta. It calls for 16 ounces of Pasta and this had only 12oz
Cut 1/2 lb of hard salami into chunks
Cut 1/2 lb Provolone Cheese into chunks
Add 3 ounces of sliced Pepperoni
I did all of this the day before and then put in a zip lock baggie and added some Zesty Italian Dressing
The next day I chopped a Red Onion and some Banana Peppers - it did not call for either.
Added a chopped Green Pepper, a small jar of Pimentos, and sliced some black olives
I cooked the Pasta for 8 minutes - see how pretty!
I did not have enough so I added some Garden Rotini
Next I took the Meat and Vegetable mixture and tossed it in a bowl- yum!
Then added the pasta and more Zesty Italian Dressing. It calls for 8 oz of any type of Italian Dressing
P.S. Yes, I guess this has just turned into a Simply Sunday blog. Since I went back to working 2 jobs last year, I have not kept up with my cards and card posting, butI am STILL a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and run long distance Monthly Hostess Clubs! So I hope you enjoy the occasional recipe and decorating fun?
