Italian Pasta Salad

The best compliment to last week's burger recipe is a yummy pasta salad. The two together make the perfect summer pair. I love pasta salads in the summer; super easy to make, refreshing, and cool!!
Here is my husband's favorite pasta salad that I make {year round} because he likes it that much!

{Summer} Italian Pasta Salad

~1 box of bow tie (or your choice) of pasta
~1 bottle of Italian dressing (I often eyeball it, but use about 1/2-3/4 of a bottle)
~1 bag of cubed colby jack cheese
~1 large or 2 small bell peppers, cut up and diced
~salami deli meat
~package of pepperoni

Make it!

1. Make pasta according to directions on box.
2. When pasta is done, drain and rinse under cold water.
3. Slice and dice: bell pepper, salami, and pepperoni.
(I used about 6-7 pieces of deli salami and about 1/2 a package of pepperonis
4. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
5. Enjoy!!
