I get requests for this pasta salad after I've served it at a bbq or some other function. I thought I would share it with you all. This makes a VERY large bowl of pasta salad and you will probably have to make it a couple of times before you get the ingredients to suit your tastes.
Quency's Pasta Salad
1- one pound box Bow Tie Pasta
1 small red onion sliced
1 bunch of green onions sliced (use the whole onion greens and all)
1 red pepper diced
1-2 tomatoes diced
about 15 green olives sliced (without pimento)
pepperocini salad peppers (to taste I use probably 4)
1 medium cucumber cut in half length wise and slice
1 head of broccoli cut into bite size pieces
3-5 oz shredded romano cheese
some time of cheese flavored italian dressing (newman's own tuscan italian is really good)
cook pasta and toss lightly with olive oil to keep from sticking. Add all the veggies and cheese toss well. Pour dressing over salad (about 8oz) and toss again.. enjoy!
