Summertime Pasta Salad

I love pasta salads in the summer...so cool and refreshing..and a great way to use up some fresh garden veggies. This recipe has been around a loooooong time. I don't know if it's just a Minnesota thing, but it seems to appear at every potluck and back yard BBQ around here. It sits right next to the potato and fresh fruit salads. I made some to serve with our burgers we are grilling tonite.

Summertime Pasta Salad
1 c. celery, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1/2 c. green onions, chopped
1 c. diced black olives
1 package pepperoni, cut in half
8 oz. Rotini pasta, boiled, drained, and rinsed in cold water
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 {16 oz.} bottle Zesty Italian dressing
3 tsp. Salad Supreme seasoning

Mix all together in a large bowl. Store in a covered container for 4 hours or over night to blend flavors.

This does look yummy. Pasta is such a nice filling food and when you can add all those extras, you have a winner.
