I love pasta, but sometimes I don’t want hot pasta for dinner in the summertime.. so I was craving a pasta salad. I hadn’t made one in a while and then I came across a pasta salad recipe that sounded delicious, so I was in.
SUMMER PASTA SALAD
- 1 package gemelli pasta
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 1 cucumber, diced
- 1 can whole kernel sweet corn, drained
- 1 package large slice pepperoni, sliced into thin strips
- 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- Brianna’s French Dressing
Cook pasta according to package. Drain and let cool slightly. Add in all other ingredients and toss together. Mix with 1/2 bottle of dressing and add a little more right before serving.
Edits: The original recipe included pine nuts and green olives – neither of which were going into mine… so I added the corn to replace the items I omitted. I didn’t have enough parmesan cheese so I crumbled up some Dubliner cheese I had in my fridge and had both cheeses!
Results: Hunter doesn’t like tomatoes so never tried it, however both mom and I ate it for various meals while she was in town! I really like the dressing and added a little more each time I ate it. This would be perfect for a cookout or snacking off of all week like we did.
