Classic Italian Pasta Salad

  • 1 lb dry salad macaroni
  • 1 (6oz) package pepperoni slices (about 90 in the package) 
  • 1 lb Colby Jack cheese block
  • 1 (6oz) can whole medium pitted olives
  • 1 (16 fl oz) bottle Kraft Tuscan House Italian Dressing* (or other favorite Italian dressing)
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  1. Boil salad macaroni according to directions on the package.  Drain & rinse in cold water.
  2. Meanwhile, cut pepperoni into quarters & roughly separate the pieces.
  3. Cut cheese into thin slices & then squares & roughly separate the pieces (or fatter cubes if desired.)
  4. Slice olives with an egg slicer or knife.
  5. Add everything into one bowl & top with dressing & parmesan cheese.  Toss to coat.  Serve immediately.  Keep leftovers refrigerated.
*If preparing ahead of time, apply extra dressing to freshen the salad right before serving.  The longer it sits in the fridge the more it absorbs the dressing.

Serves 16-20
