Pittsburgh Football Sunday Pasta Salad

Recipe by  

"I created this pasta salad when I needed something to bring to a football party and didn't have time to go to the store. Since then, it's become a staple! Every bite is always eaten! Use whatever type of pasta you like. I like to mix varieties together."

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the penne, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink. Rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.
  2. Combine the mayonnaise, salad dressing, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper in a blender; blend until completely mixed.
  3. Place the coleslaw mix, tomatoes, cucumber, tuna, Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, green onions, and the cooked pasta in a large bowl; pour mayonnaise mixture into the bowl; toss to coat. Serve cold.

Good summer pasta dish. My son really enjoyed it. My husband and I think it needs something, but can't quite figure out what that is. I took it to a ladies dinner at church and it was well received. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

The pasta was very good. I used whole wheat pasta but that was the only difference. Godd pasta but is missing the WOW factor.Would make again though.

Very tasty pasta salad! Used shells and macaroni and added 1/3 cup of sour cream also and 2 packs of Splenda. I'm sure it would be good with some crumbled bacon, but wouldn't be as healthy. I also add a fresh chopped de-seeded jalapeno for more warmth. I think it could use maybe another can of tuna too. I would definitely make it again though.
