My Super Easy Pasta Salad

I'm a huge pasta salad fan and so is J. I often will throw together a batch of pasta salad that we use for our lunches throughout the week. It's so easy to make and even easier to just grab for lunch on the go. I thought I'd share this super easy recipe with you so that you too can enjoy this yummy (and healthy) lunch option.

Super Easy and Super Yummy Pasta Salad

-1 box whole wheat rotini pasta
-Half a white onion (chopped)
-Half a package of TURKEY pepperonis
-2 cans of sliced black olives
-1 bag of Kraft 100 calorie cheese bites (cheddar & monterey jack)
-Olive Oil (to taste)
-Italian Seasoning

-Cook the past, strain and let cool
-Mix chopped onions, black olives and pepperonis in a large bowl
-Once pasta is cooled add to onion/olive/pepperoni and mix well
-Lightly coat pasta in olive oil
-Season with Italian Seasoning
-Mix in Cheese Bites
