Manly Meaty Pasta Salad

This pasta is perfect for a group of hungry guys. It is full of meat that you would find on a big Italian sub! And if you are a fan of peppers and onions, which I am not, I am sure they would be great in here as well.

1 pound of pasta
2 ¼ inch deli slices of ham
2 ¼ inch deli slices of pepperoni
2 ¼ inch deli slices of salami
8 ounce block of mozzarella cheese
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 can sliced black olives
1 16 ounce bottle Zesty Italian Dressing

Cook pasta in salted water.

While pasta is cooking, cut up ham, pepperoni, salami, mozzarella and tomatoes.

Drain pasta and mix in all but 1/3 cup of dressing. When the pasta has cooled down some, mix in your ham, pepperoni, salami, mozzarella, tomatoes and olives. (You do not want to mix everything in with the pasta still hot because it will start to melt the cheese).

Set pasta mixture in the refrigerator overnight or for at least a few hours. Right before serving mix in the reserved 1/3 cup of dressing.
