Pepper Pepperoni Pasta Salad
A Side Dish Or
Another TV Dinner Idea

This simple pepper pepperoni pasta salad was the inspiration of a vendor in a bridal show several years ago.

Pepper Pepperoni Pasta Salad

Prep Time: 10 Minutes  Cook Time: 20 Minutes  Serving: 4-6



That's right.  I remember that I had a booth doing Chinese calligraphy in the art show section that day.  This vendor handed out sampler for people to try it. 

Since then, I had never forgot that pasta salad.  It may not taste exactly the same as what the sampler was.  But this pasta salad tastes darn good. 

I make it the day before serving and let it sit overnight in the fridge.  This allows all the flavors marry together. 

Yes, you can double the quantity.

You can either serve it as a side dish or a TV dinner.  Everybody sitting in front of the TV watching a movie and enjoy a serving of this pasta salad.  Nothing is better than that, huh?

2 Green Bell Pepper (discard membrane and diced)
