We're Adam and Joanne from inspired taste dot net and welcome to our kitchen .
We are showing you how to make our quick and easy pasta .
Salad packed with crisp vegetables , fresh mozzarella and tossed with a simple homemade dressing .
Let's make the dressing first .
I'm doing it in a large bowl so that I can add all the salad ingredients directly to it to make the dressing .
Combine red wine vinegar juice from a Pepperoncini jar , dried oregano , salt and pepper .
The pepper and chini juice is optional , but we love the extra flavor slowly stream in the olive oil while you whisk until the dressing is thickened .
Don't forget the full recipe with ingredient amounts is found on inspired taste toss and cooked pasta .
If it's still warm , that's ok .
In fact , I find that warm pasta absorbs the flavors of the dressing a bit better for the veggies .
We use zucchini , bell pepper , scallions and tomatoes .
You are welcome to add or substitute based on what you have for the zucchini .
I simply slice it into thin disks .
I like to slice the bell peppers into small thin sticks .
I use both the white and green parts of the scallions and thinly slice them .
And here I'm using cherry tomatoes .
So I quarter the big ones and half the smaller ones for some heat and a vinegary pop of flavor .
We add pepperoncinis .
These are optional , but I love them in this pasta salad .
Just remove the stem and slice into thin rings .
Add all the veggies to the bowl with the pasta .
Now , for some more ingredients , I'm adding pitted and sliced olives .
Next throw in lots of chopped fresh herbs .
This is parsley and basil , but use what you have on hand .
And finally some cheese .
This is grated parmesan and fresh mozzarella that's been cut into bite size pieces .
Toss the pasta salad really well and that's it quick and easy pasta salad that's packed with flavor .
