Italian antipasto - pasta salad


Italiano Pasta Salad

Please excuse the photo quality. I took it this weekend during our camping trip. I made the pasta salad the day before we left and we ate it for lunch the next day. It was divine and oh so simple - music to my ears or should I say taste buds. Check out the simple recipe and let me know what you think. I picked up the prosciutto log at Costco, but I have also seen them at the grocery store.

1 box of Penne pasta
1/2 mozzarella prosciutto log, slice into large slices then quarter
Italian dressing (about 1/4 cup, or adjust as desired)
2 Green Onion, sliced
1/8 - 1/4 cup Feta Cheese
Pinch Salt
Fresh Pepper
Pinch Hot Pepper Flakes (optional) 
1 small can of sliced olives
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Cook pasta 1 minute less than package directions; you want them al dente. Drain Pasta, rinse and place into a large bowl. Drizzle pasta with Italian dressing then add in remaining ingredients. Stir well to combine. Taste and add salt or more dressing as needed. For the best flavor, allow to refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
