Italian Rotini Salad

It's hot outside and I really don't feel like turning on the stove or oven right now. As I thought about sharing something yummy and fresh this Italian Salad came to mind. This salad once again, is inspired by my friend Diana. She makes the exact same salad except she uses bow tie pasta.  It is very easy to put together and it is very satisfying!

Here is what you need:


16oz bag of multicolor Rotini pasta
2.25oz sliced olives
8oz package of peperoni
(I don't use the whole bag...you can make a pizza with the leftovers)
4 celery chopped celery stalks
2 tomatoes chopped
1 cup mozzarella cheese
Italian Dressing (any flavor will do)




Bring water to a rolling boil in a large stock pot.
Add pasta and cover.
Once pasta is ready drain and set aside to cool.

Once pasta has cooled off put it in a pretty glass bowl and add tomatoes.



Add celery.




Add olives.




Add Peperoni.



Pour in some Italian dressing. I used a small bottle and used about half.


Add cheese.


Gently stir in all the ingredients so that you don't break up the Rotini.


And here is my picky eater giving this salad a thumbs up!!
Buen Provecho!!!
