Salami Pasta Salad

I love pasta salad! I got a new magazine by Taste of Home called "Great American Cookout" and it has a lot of great recipes in it. I found this pasta salad recipe and made it for Mother's Day/My Mom's Birthday and it was good!
Salami Pasta Salad
  • Three cups uncooked medium tube pasta (I used a 1 pound box of Rigatoni, more than three cups, but I like for the sauce to spread out and not take over)
  • 8 ounces hard salami, cubed
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons minced fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 4 teaspoons minced fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • **I added one diced tomato to this recipe. I thought it could use it and we liked it!

In a large saucepan, cook pasta according to package directions; rinse in cold water and drain. Transfer to a large bowl; add salami, parsley and onions (and tomatoes :).

In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar and seasonings. Drizzle over pasta mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Just before serving, stir in Parmesan Cheese.



Happy Cooking!~

Thanks for looking!
