Heavenly Angel Garden Pasta Salad Recipe

A few weeks ago I participated in the Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pasta Summer Pastabilities Recipe Contest and since that time I have received many requests to post my recipe in a blog post all on it's own to make printing it out easier. So for those who have requested it, it's below!

Heavenly Angel Garden Pasta Salad Recipe

8 oz. uncooked Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Angel Hair Pasta
8 oz. Italian Salad Dressing
2 Medium Tomatoes, chopped
2 Medium Cucumbers, chopped
1 Large Green Pepper, chopped
¼ cup Onion, chopped
¼ cup Pepperoni Slices, quartered or halved
¾ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon celery seed
½ cup Cheddar Cheese, Shredded

Cook the Whole Wheat Angel Hair Pasta in water until done; drain water. Run pasta under cold tap water for 4 minutes while letting it sit in a strainer. Pour pasta in a large salad bowl. Gently stir in the 8 oz. Italian Salad Dressing. Cover bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Remove bowl from refrigerator and toss in the chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, green pepper, onion and pepperoni slices. Sprinkle salt, ground black pepper and celery seed on top, gently stir to combine. Sprinkle ½ cup Cheddar Cheese on top. Place lid back onto the bowl and refrigerate for 4 hours before serving.

Note: You can substitute the Cheddar Cheese with Mozzarella Cheese.
