Italian Pasta Salad

This is made with the wonderful plan of using my Catalina dressing recipe instead of the usual Italian dressing :-)


  • 16 Oz. dried rotini pasta cooked and cooled
  • 10 Oz. hard salami, diced
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup black olives, sliced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 cups bell pepper, diced
  • 8 Oz. fresh small mozzarella balls
  • 2 Oz. parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup basil, chopped
  • 1 cup Italian dressing - NO! 1 cup Catalina dressing
  • Salt and pepper to taste

What to do with them...

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and gently toss. Add more dressing and salt and pepper if desired. Can serve immediately or you can refrigerate until ready.
