Pasta Pizza Salad

     I’ve been craving pasta salad lately but I wanted something a little different. I remembered a woman at work making a pasta salad with lettuce and a yummy cheese. I went into work the next day and asked if she could bring the recipe in for me. Turns out she had a copy in her desk-SCORE!

     After looking at the recipe I was pleased to find I only needed to go buy the cheese as we had everything else at home. It was better then I remembered. It’s an interesting hybrid of a pasta salad and a tossed salad. The flavors are decidedly Italian and the vinegar adds the perfect amount of acid to balance out the creamy cheese.
