The Easiest Italian Pasta Salad Ever

May 16, 2013

Picnic season has arrived and pasta salad is a must-have dish.  This recipe is so easy that you'll be making it throughout the entire summer.  Pasta is tossed in your favorite Italian dressing along with bell pepper, olives, pepperoni and more.  Feel free to add your favorite ingredients to this salad like chunks of fresh mozzarella and marinated artichokes.  This Italian pasta gets better the longer it sits so try to make it ahead of time if possible.

Easy Italian Pasta Salad


16 ounces shell pasta, cooked, drained, and cooled
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup sliced black olives, pitted
1 cup sliced pepperoni

Mix all ingredients and refrigerate until serving.

That does not look like shell pasta, nor does it look like parmesan cheese. Looks like lasagna noodles and feta to me.

Further, I see avocado, not bell pepper. Weird recipe.
