Description

This is my mom’s recipe for pasta salad, and whenever I ask her for the recipe, she just tells me to “put everything but the kitchen sink” in it! So that’s what I do for this super easy and quick addition to any meal, especially great for summer picnics!

Ingredients

  • 1 box (1 Lb.) Rotini Pasta
  • ½ bunches Fresh Broccoli
  • ½ pounds Carrots
  • 1 whole Red Or Green (or Both) Pepper(s)
  • 2 whole Small Tomatoes
  • ½ pounds Cheddar Cheese, Cut Into Small Cubes
  • 1 bottle (8 Oz.) Italian Dressing, Or To Taste
  • ¼ cups Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 package Smoked Sausage

Preparation

Cook pasta according to box directions. Drain and place in a bowl.

Slice smoked sausage and cook for a few minutes in a skillet until it is browned on each side. Once the sausage is cooked toss it in the bowl.

Chop up broccoli, carrots, peppers, tomatoes, and cheddar cheese into small pieces.

Once all the items are chopped, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and cover with Italian dressing. Top with the Parmesan cheese. Let the salad sit in the fridge for a while to let the flavors combine.

It’s easy to add or omit items to this salad and make it to your liking!
