Lisa’s Mufeletta Pasta Salad
1 lb pasta of your choice–I think the small shells
or the small bow-tie is best for this recipe
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup chopped green onion
4 cloves minced garlic
1 jar Olive Tapanade
1/2 lb salami
1/4 lb ham
1/2 pkg of the mini pepperonis
1 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese
1 – 2 cups Mozzarella Cheese
1 small jar chopped pimentos, drained
1 large can whole olives, drained
Cook pasta per package directions, drain and let cool.
In a very large bowl, add the pasta, green onion, garlic,
olive oil, tapanade and stir until all the pasta is coated well.
Slice the salami and ham into small pieces and add next.
Pour in the pepperoni, pimentos and the cheeses;
stir until all is combined.
Gently stir in the olives last.
Refrigerate a few hours or overnight.
