Summer is here and time to share this recipe for Protein Packed Pasta Salad.
I call this dish Protein Packed Pasta Salad because of the abundance of different meats and cheeses in it. It is a colorful dish and makes a great side. It also makes a complete meal itself.
My family always requests this pasta salad for any get
together, and my husband makes sure there is never any
Two of my daughters have to eat Gluten Free, so this is
wonderful if you use the Gluten Free Pasta also.
I like to buy the meats and cheeses from the deli so that I can get thick pieces and cut them into cubes.
Boil the pasta, drain and set aside to cool. Place in mixing bowl.
Cut the peppers into small pieces and add to pasta.
Cut the ham, salami, and cheeses into 1/2-inch cubes and add to the pasta, along with pepperoni.
Cut tomatoes in half and add to bowl.
Add the dressing slowly, tossing to coat all ingredients.
Cover and chill at least 4 hours.
Gently toss salad prior to serving, drizzle additional dressing if needed.
This Protein Packed Pasta Salad is easy to transport,
colorful, and delicious. The perfect side dish.
