This flavorful pasta salad contains a few unique ingredients that make it stand above the rest (spoiler: zesty Italian dressing).

– Zesty Italian salad dressing – Rotelle pasta – Yellow onion – Celery – Cojack cheese – Summer sausage – Artichoke hearts – Black olives – Sun-dried tomatoes – Sea salt – Ground pepper – Red pepper flakes – Parmesan cheese

Chop, dice, slice and get all your fresh  ingredients ready and added to a large serving bowl. 

Add in the cooked pasta last to avoid breaking it apart when you're stirring the salad. 

Allowing the ingredients to marinate in the fridge overnight is ideal. When you pull the cold pasta salad out of the fridge the next day, the flavors will be perfect. Drizzle olive oil over the top just before serving.

Consider adding fresh herbs to the mix! Fresh parsley, chives or basil all taste great.
