I guess I choose olives because I love olives.. but I’m not a fan of cold pasta. Why dont you wanna do mac and cheese anymore?

Scallions, cherry tomatoes, chopped green peppers, feta cheese, toasted pine nuts…

Grape or cherry tomatoes are delicious, maybe marinated artichoke hearts, cubes of feta cheese.

Make sure you toss the pasta with some sort of dressing (even just olive oil and lemon juice) while it’s hot, though – this keeps it from drying out while it’s cooling/sitting out.

McCormick makes a spice called “Pasta Supreme” and it is amazing! I use it with olive oil all the time. I usually throw in chopped cucumbers, broccoli and green peppers too! SO GOOD!

Oo I made one last night! I added tons of veggies: zuchini, cherry tomatoes, summer squash, cucumbers, black olives, green and red peppers, diced onions, and a bunch of fresh herbs from the garden 🙂

I make mine with low fat italian dressing 🙂

I usually make pasta salad with italian and balsamic vinaigrette dressings, mozzarella cheese, black olives, tomatoes, salami, pepperoni, and garlic.

I love celery and carrot slices in mine to give a nice crisp bite to the soft pasta. But I agree with the ham, pepperoni, olives, cheese and such already listed, too.
