Hannah's Soon to be Famous Pasta Salad

Hannah's Soon to be Famous Pasta Salad

My daughter Hannah was remembering a pasta salad I "used to make".  It had been many years, but today, she and her brother Colin went shopping.  They gathered ingredients.  Upon their return, I had the water boiling and Hannah began to create a delish pasta salad.  It is SOOO good that I have decided to post it as to not forget how she made it.

  Here goes.

Hannah's Soon to be Famous Pasta Salad
*makes one large bowl of pasta salad perfect for taking to a picnic or your next family reunion.

1/4 bottle Robust Italian Salad Dressing
1 Package Multi colored Rotini noodles cooked Al Dente
1/3 lb salami sliced thick and cut into chunks
1/3 lb small pepperoni (packaged)
20 Fresh grape or cherry tomatoes, Sliced in half
3/4 jar black olives, drained and sliced in half
1/4 lb Pepperjack cheese cubed ( small pieces)
1/2 Medium Red onion Chopped
1  green pepper, Chopped
Drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pepper to taste
Parmesan Cheese

Prepare all ingredients (chop etc) while boiling the pasta to Al Dente (test for doneness at about 7 minutes.  Hint: you want the pasta somewhat firm).  Once the pasta has boiled, Drain and allow to cool for several minutes. Once drained and cooled, add the prepared Italian salad dressing and toss the pasta.
Add the pepperoni, salami,tomatoes, cheese, olives, onion, green pepper to the pasta and toss, drizzle with evoo and add parmesan cheese and pepper to taste.  Toss again and refrigerate.

You may also add, gardinare, hot peppers, broccoli or cauliflower, sweet snap peas would be great as well! 
         Serve and Enjoy!

  oh... a little feta cheese would be good too... but I think it was perfect just how she made it
