ITALIAN PASTA SALAD
My kids have two days left of school. Can you believe that?
Next year I will have a second grader and a kindergarten. I can’t believe that Drew will be out of my house all day and at school. The end of school in Ohio means we are approaching Memorial Day weekend. It also means warm weather picnics and summer get togethers that involve delicious pasta salads like this Italian Pasta Salad.
When I go to a picnic or bbq I almost always bring an easy pasta salad to share. They are a crowd pleaser, easy to make ahead and big enough to feed a crowd. Today’s Italian Pasta Salad is one I love making because it is loaded with a lot of goodies including chickpeas, artichokes, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, pepperoncinis, salami, pepperoni, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese and topped with a light Italian dressing. This salad is customizable to your tastes so if you don’t like something in the ingredients list just skip it!
