This is all about ease for me and I take some shortcuts, but really focused on keeping it simple.
1 pound of penne pasta
1/2 pint halved cherry tomatoes
1/2 red onion thinly sliced
1/2 bell pepper chopped
1 bag of spinach
1/3 cup halved Castelvetrano olives
1 pack of Italian salad dressing (make per instructions, but use pasta water instead of regular water)
Chopped Cheese and Cured Meat (my favorite combinations are salami/mozzarella or prosciutto/truffled gouda)
- Cook pasta per packaging instructions. Allow pasta to cool to room temperature. Save pasta water for dressing.
- While pasta is cooking, prep all other ingredients, except dressing. Toss together in a bowl.
- Then add pasta and dressing to bowl and toss everything together. Enjoy.
