Combining Two Popular Favorites into One Delicious Recipe
June 2, 2014
Summer is here and you know what that means...Cookouts, 4th of July, parties and cool meals for warm nights. Out of all the holidays and celebrations throughout the year 4th of July is one of my favorites. Our town hosts a huge parade and fireworks, with several events leading up to the big day. Potlucks and picnics also play a big part in the holiday fun. Having a delicious salad recipe like this Layered Italian Pasta Salad that will feed a crowd is perfect.
Everyone loves pasta salad and pizza, so why not kick the pasta salad recipe up a notch and include some of your favorite ingredients from pizza? How about a supreme with all the toppings? This Italian Pasta Salad has Pepperoni, Tomatoes, Green Peppers, Green Onions, Olives, Mozzarella Cheese, and KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese, all layered with a seasoning blend and finished with GOOD SEASONS Italian Dressing mixed in the handy GOOD SEASONS cruet kit. The best thing about this Pasta Salad is that it can be made ahead and ready to serve.
While we often enjoy a cool Chicken Salad or maybe a Taco Salad for dinner on a warm night, when it comes to Summer cookouts, it's time for Barbecue and of course, hotdogs. We love serving a Hotdog Bar with lots of toppings, and let everyone see how creative they can be. Last year we had Taco Hotdogs and a Chicago Dog, since I'm from the Midwest. Impress your guests at the next cookout with a Hotdog bar and Layered Italian Pasta Salad...shhh, we won't tell it was super easy!
