Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package tri-color rigatoni pasta

  • 2 onions, diced

  • 3 tomatoes, diced

  • 12 ounces provolone cheese, cut into strips

  • 2 green bell peppers, diced

  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced pepperoni

  • ¼ cup sliced olives, or to taste

Dressing:

  • 1 cup olive oil

  • ½ cup vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook rigatoni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 13 minutes. Drain and let cool, about 10 minutes.

  2. Combine pasta, onions, tomatoes, provolone cheese, green bell peppers, pepperoni, and olives in a large bowl.

  3. Whisk olive oil, vinegar, Parmesan cheese, sugar, and oregano together in a bowl to make dressing. Pour over pasta mixture; toss until well mixed.

Cook's Note:

Substitute mozzarella cheese for the provolone cheese if preferred.
