Pizza Pasta Salad Recipe : quick and easy summer week dinner or office lunch.

Has it ever happened you find several slices of pepperonis, olives, cheese and tomatoes in the fridge ?

If your answer is „ of course „, this Pizza Pasta Salad Recipe is absolutely perfect way to use them all for tasty week dinner and / or office lunch, especially during hot weather season.
The choice of ingredients is all on your own to combine. You can use whatever you have in the fridge: prosciutto or bacon, rotisserie chicken, bell peppers of any colour, your favourite pasta shape ( smaller is the best ), cheese left once pizza was done; almost everything makes it work so it is so frugal and budget friendly and I find it perfect to make every season whenever there is half prepared food left in the fridge.
