Bring a touch of Italy to the dinner table with a delicious pasta salad bursting with cheese, salami, olives and tomatoes.

Yield

6 servings

Ingredients

1 box Betty Crocker® Suddenly Salad® Caesar pasta salad mix
1/2 cup Italian dressing
4 cups torn romaine lettuce
1 cup cubed salami
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
4 ounces mozzarella or provolone cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (1 cup)
1 (2 1/4 ounce) can sliced ripe olives, drained

Directions

Empty Pasta mix into 3-quart saucepan 2/3 full of boiling water. Gently boil uncovered 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Drain pasta; rinse with cold water. Shake to drain well.

In large bowl, stir together seasoning mix and dressing. Toss with pasta and remaining ingredients. Stir in croutons and Parmesan topping just before serving. Serve immediately, or refrigerate.

Estimated Time

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Additional Information

Make this salad a day ahead, but wait to stir in the lettuce, croutons and Parmesan topping until just before serving.

Make it your way. Use a 3.5-ounce package of sliced pepperoni instead of the salami; cut the slices in half. Add canned (drained) artichoke hearts, or use other olives from the deli.

Purchase a bag of ready-to-eat torn romaine lettuce to save time.
