Prepare This Pizza Pasta Salad Ahead Of Time

During the summer I prepare a lot of pasta recipes.  Because they are easy to make and delicious, we have pasta several times a week.  Pasta salads are a favorite pasta dish for several reasons.  They are not only quick and easy but delicious warm or cold.  Noteworthy, you can prepare an easy pasta salad ahead of time.  Certainly, place this pizza pasta salad in the refrigerator for your family to enjoy anytime.  

What is in this Fantastic Pizza Pasta Salad?

Pizza Pasta Salad includes Rotini, Italian Dressing, pepperoni, Canadain Bacon.  It also includes bell pepper, Mozzarella cheese, and Italian season.  This pizza pasta salad has all the flavors of a pizza.

Pasta Feeds A Crowd And Is Inexpensive

This pizza pasta salad is perfect for lunch or a quick and easy dinner.  It is also terrific for potlucks, picnics, and pool parties.  This salad generally feeds around twelve.  You can easily double this recipe to feed a crowd.  Because the main ingredient is pasta, it is relatively inexpensive.  

Olive Garden Italian Dressing

Certainly, you can use your favorite bottle of Italian dressing.  If you make Italian dressing from scratch, use it in this recipe.  I use Olive Garden Italian Dressing.  It is my families favorite Italian dressing.  Noteworthy, my local Walmart carries it. 

Use Mini Pepperoni

When making any pasta using pepperoni, I like to use the mini pepperoni  Because mini pepperonis do not stick together, they are great for this salad.  Even better, you do not have to cut the minis into bite-size pieces.  My local grocery store was out of mini pepperoni.  For this pizza pasta salad, I used regular size pepperoni.  I simply cut the larger pepperoni into quarters.
