Ingredients

  • 8 oz fusilli pasta
  • 1 cup salami cubed
  • 1 cup ham cubed
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese cubed
  • 1 cup provolone cheese cubed
  • 1 cup black olives sliced
  • 1 cup green olives sliced
  • ½ cup red bell peppers chopped
  • 3/4 cup Tony Chachere’s Creole Style Italian Dressing or more to taste
  • 1 tbsp parsley chopped
  • 1-2 pepperoncini peppers

Instructions

  • Bring water to boil in a medium pot, then add fusilli pasta. Cook fusilli pasta based on package instructions. When done, drain water and set pasta aside to cool. Pasta needs to cool before tossing with the other ingredients, if not cheese will melt. Cool pasta by running over cold water to expedite the process if desire.
  • In a large bowl, bring together cooled pasta, salami, ham, mozzarella cheese, provolone cheese, red bell pepper, black olives, and green olives.
  • Pour Italian dressing all over and toss to combine.
  • Bring pasta salad to a serving bowl. Garnish with parsley, top with pepperoncini peppers.
  • Serve and enjoy!
