Ingredients

  • 1 lb box penne pasta
  • 1 (8 oz) package whole pepperoni
  • 1 (8 oz) package mozzarella cheese
  • 1 (16 oz) bottle of your favorite Italian dressing
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese optional

Instructions

  • In a large stock pot of boiling water, cook your pasta until al dente (following the directions on the back or side of the box).
  • When finished cooking, drain and rinse pasta with cool water.
  • Let it drain well, then add to a large lidded bowl.
  • Chop up all your mozzarella and pepperoni into 1-inch cubes.
  • And slice the grape tomatoes in half (I usually cut them lengthwise).
  • Add those to your cooled pasta
  • Pour your bottle of Italian dressing on top (using as little or as much as you like).
  • Give it all a good stir.
  • Next, if you are using, add shredded Parmesan Cheese and give it another good stir.
  • Cover with plastic wrap or a fitted lid.
  • Then pop the bowl in the fridge to cool for at least 2 hours before serving.

Notes

If you want to "up" the Italian flavor, you can always add additional Italian spices to this: 1 tsp. each of Oregano, Basil, Red Pepper flakes, Fennel Seed, Garlic Powder and Salt & Pepper (to taste).
