This week Mark decided to share his Italian Pasta Salad that he makes. This pasta salad can be made with or without meat giving you the option of saving a little money in the preparation. Here is the recipe:
Colored rotini gives salads a little extra color, but really, any kind of rotini will work. Plus, with lots of colors from the onions, tomatoes, and green peppers, you may find you don’t care about colored rotini. Mark also prefers black olives to green olives in his salad, but that would really be a preference choice of yours to make. Green olives tend to be more potent and will gain strength in taste and smell as the salad sits.
Five quarts will feed approximately 40 people, so unless you are having a huge party, you may want to cut his in half or you will be enjoying Italian Pasta Salad for a week!
Feel free to place an order or try your hand at this simple salad and let us know what you think!
