The Ultimate Pasta Salad

Recipe submitted by: Helene


 "The tri-colored pasta along with the variety of vegetables, pepperoni, cheeses and spices is what makes this pasta salad out of this world.

Great to take to a BBQ on those warm summer nights. This salad tastes wonderful right after you make it, but is best served the day after."
