Pasta Salad

Well, we got invited out to eat at my dad's house, so I decided to make some pasta salad to go along with it.

The Menu:
Pasta Salad

The Origional Recipe:
This recipe is inspired by my stepsister-in-law!! Somtimes I add extra veggies and sometimes I leave things out. It all depends on your taste!

Pasta Salad

1 Large box spiral noodles
1/2 head Broccoli head chopped
1/2 head Cauliflour head chopped
1 Small purple onion chopped
1 Medium green bell pepper chopped
1 jar Pitted black olives chopped (optional)
1 dozen cherry tomatoes
1/2 (8oz.)  Block hot pepper jack cheese cubed
1/2 (8oz.) Block colby and monteray jack cheese cubed
1/2 pkg. Pepperoni (already sliced), quartered
1 bottle Italian dressing

Boil noodles according to pkg. Let noodles cool, then add the remaining ingrediants and only 1/2 bottle of Italian Dressing, mix well. Chill and serve. Right before serving add more Italian dressing to spruce up the flavor. If you want to use the whole head of vegetables and block of cheese, you might want to use 2 boxes of spiral noodles. This makes a nice big bowl to share!
