Italian Pasta Salad

This is my absolute favorite pasta salad.  It is easy to make and always goes over well at parties.

1 lb spiral pasta
1 1/2 cup cubed extra sharp provolone cheese
1 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
1 cup chopped green olives w/ pimento
1 cup chopped black olives
1 cup chopped red onion
1/8 cup chopped fresh basil
1 cup balsamic dressing (i use good seasons)

Cook pasta and cool.  Add all ingredients and chill for 2 hours or overnight.  Serve.


  1. Your pasta salad looks delicious! I love, love, love the party you did for your friend. I love how the colors of the food all coordinate and look so beautiful with each other. What are in those roll ups and what's on the skewers? Thanks!

    1. Thank you. The Roll ups are Mexican pinwheels and turkey, bacon and cranberry pinwheels. I have both of the recipes on here if you are interested. This was my 1st catering job and I am so glad I did it. I loved it and it went over very well. The skewers there were 2. One was cheese and basil sausage and pineapple and the other was grape tomatoes, basil an fresh mozzarella. Thanks for the compliment on the catering :)
