Cook pasta in boiling water until al dente; drain and rinse with cold water.
Add pasta to a large mixing bowl along with pepper, onion, tomatoes, olives, Mozzarella, salami, vinegar, olive oil, Parmesan, parsley, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Mix well, cover tightly and refrigerate until ready to serve.
If you love garlic, use 1 to 2 cloves of fresh garlic in place of garlic powder! Using your garlic press makes it super fast and easy.
Be sure to prepare this salad just prior to serving it. If you do make it early in the day and let it sit in the fridge, give it a quick stir and add a squirt or two of Italian salad dressing because some of the liquids will soak into the pasta.
Add 1/2 to 1 cup of sliced green olives!
Replace grated Parmesan with freshly shredded Parmesan, if desired.
Make this as a side dish for your next meal or serve at your next party.
