One of my favorite salad recipes. This Italian Pasta Salad is fresh and full of flavor. Its perfect as a meal itself or a side dish for your next gathering.
Italian subs are my all time favorite! I love everything about it from the pepperoni to the peppers. I tossed this together to take for a simple lunch to the pool. I ended up making it again and again. I added a few of my favorite toppings from my favorite Italian sub but you could also add tomatoes, olives, or more of your favorite deli meat. Don’t forget to comment and tell me how you made this recipe, I love hearing your ideas.
