Pepperoni Angel Hair

This noodle side dish is so versatile that it can accompany steak, pork chops, chicken or even hamburgers. Chill leftovers to serve as a cool main-dish salad on a warm summer night. When time allows, I like to replace the pepperoni with sliced cooked chicken. -Julie Mosher, Coldwater, Michigan

    Very tasty pasta salad. You can vary vegetables to your families likes. I add grape tomatoes and green onion to mine!

    I have been making this recipe for years. Everyone who tries it absolutely loves it and asks for more. After making it many times, I noticed that the veggies and pepperoni would fall to the bottom w/ the angel hair pasta. I changed the pasta to the bow tie pasta and it worked great. I also just use what ever Italian salad dressing I have on hand. I also use grated Parmesan cheese which is what I usually have in the fridge. I also add sliced green olives and the black olives. This pasta salad is awesome and I make it all the time in the summer.

    Yum! Easy to cater to your liking. We added grape tomatoes and omitted olives. Didn't bother peeling the cucumber either. Great with turkey pepperoni & whole wheat thin spaghetti.~ Theresa

    Have made this a number of times and always get compliments. You can also alter this easily to make as much or as little as needed. Another thing, I now buy the new smaller pepperoni pieces instead of quartering the regular size ones!
