Posted by   + Show Post

Everyone has a secret ingredient or two they love to add to their dishes to give it that extra "je ne sais quoi."

I've never seen it with pepperoni either! I'd bet my hubby would like it!

Itallian dressing, tri color pasta, cucumber, tomatoes, the zucchini and squash fried in olive oil and fresh garlic just enough to soften it a bit and give it a nice flavor, bacon, black olives, and a bit of cheese either three cheese mexican or feta. If I want it more as a meal than a side I will add boneless skinless chicken breast. Everyone loves my pasta salad

I use the Dream Fields pasta cause my hubby is diabetic and this pasta doesn't zing his blood sugar to the stratosphere! Then I use

Marzetti  ranch dressing or creamy Italian  

pepperoni or ham, 

red peppers

tomatoes

 cucumbers

 Mrs. Dash garlic and red pepper OR  salad seasoning


 When people cut you down, or talk about you behind your back, remember they took time out of their pathetic lives, to think about you....

I like to add capers to my pasta salad. It's a nice salty, lemony bite to it.
