Pasta salad

Hope everyone has been enjoying their Memorial Day weekend!  We've been having such a fantastic weekend, and when I have more time I'll post some pics. For today, I thought I'd share one of our recipes. Some of our friends and family have been asking for our pasta salad recipe. I'm sure there are similiar ones out there, but this is the one we came up with.  I make it for almost every cookout we have or go to.  We all love it, and hope you do!


Jeromy and Kelly's Italian Pasta Salad

2 Boxes of Tri-color pasta
Few big handfuls of pepperoni, chopped in 4ths
1 Block Helluvagood Sharp Cheddar, cubed
Couple handfuls of shredded mozzarella
1 red onion, diced
1 or 1 and 1/2 green pepper(s) diced
Grape Tomatoes
Italian Dressing
Ground black pepper

Chop everything while cooking pasta. Put pepperoni, onion, and pepper in big bowl. Pour drained (still hot) pasta over mixture in bowl. Let sit for a few minutes, then mix with some italian dressing. Once it has cooled off a little, throw the cubed cheddar, shredded mozz, and grape tomatoes in. Grind some black pepper over the top, stir well, let chill in fridge at least overnight for best results. Pasta soaks the dressing right up, so refresh with a lil bit more italian dressing right before serving.
