So really, I grew up not eating much pasta.
We usually had rice or potatoes.My Mom would make pasta sometimes,
but always rice or potatoes, too.
She was much nicer than me.
I make one thing and either you eat it or you don’t.
Now, my Dad has softened a bit and will occasionally eat pasta in small amount.
So whenever my Mom makes this salad I know that I’m going to get a portion.
This recipe is so simple,
She makes it without cheese,
but I usually add some grated Parmigiano-Reggiano whenever I make it.
3-4 tablespoons creamy Italian salad dressing
1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (optional)
salt and pepper, to taste
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine. Chill overnight for flavors to combine.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
