Cheddar and Artichoke Pasta Salad
This recipe can be switched up a lot. When I have enough ingredients on hand this is my favorite pasta salad combination.
- 1 box Pasta (I prefer a spiral noodle)
- 1 jar artichoke hearts
- cheddar cheese
- 1 bottle Newman's Italian dressing

Cook your pasta according to the directions on the box.
Transfer drained pasta to a large bowl and add desired amount on dressing. I usually end up using, not quite the whole bottle. Place in the fridge and let cool.
Once pasta has cooled add raw chopped broccoli, artichoke hearts, salami, cheddar cheese and tomatoes.
If I am making this for a party and I know it will be eaten I add the tomatoes and cheese. If I am just making this for myself at home, I keep the cheese and tomatoes separate and add them when I am having a bowl.
