Pizza Pasta Salad

Pizza Pasta Salad: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I have made this salad several times and it is always a hit when I make it. One time I made it with hard salami and another time I made it with pepperoni. My family prefers the version with pepperoni better, so that is what I have listed below.

Pizza Pasta Salad
1- 16 ounce box of penne pasta
5 Roma tomatoes, chopped
3 ounces turkey pepperoni, quartered
1 1/4 cups mozzarella cubes
1- 3/4 ounce package fresh basil, chopped
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup roasted red pepper Italian with Parmesan dressing

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water.

In a large bowl combine the pasta, tomatoes, pepperoni, mozzarella, basil, Parmesan cheese and dressing. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to let the flavors blend.
