Italian Pasta Salad

This Italian pasta salad will remind you of summer… at least that’s what it reminds me of! I love a cold, refreshing pasta salad anytime of year though. This recipe is easy to put together and makes great left overs as well since the flavors marinate so well together.

Meats, cheese, vegetables, olives and pasta make this salad great for a side or main dish. The choice is yours. To put together this dish, cook your pasta according to the package, rinse it to cool it, then toss it together with all of the other ingredients! Either serve immediately or let chill before serving and enjoy!
