Ingredients
  • 3 cups uncooked bow-tie pasta (or other pasta)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 can water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and chopped
  • 2 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 3 ounces sliced pepperoni
  • 1 small onion (red or yellow), diced
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup chopped green pepper
  • (optional) 1 Avocado diced
  • 1 cup Italian salad dressing
Instructions
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mozzarella cheese, artichokes, avocado, olives, pepperoni, onion, Parmesan cheese, green pepper, and Italian dressing.
  3. Stir until well mixed.
  4. Drain pasta and rinse under cold water until pasta is chilled.
  5. Add chilled pasta to mixing bowl and toss together.
  6. Serve right away or cover and chill in the fridge till ready. I think it tastes better when it has chilled in the fridge for 30+ minutes, it seems to marinate a bit.
