Expert Tips

If using pasta for a salad, rinse it under cold running water to remove the excess starch and to keep the pasta from sticking together.

For Pizza Pasta Salad, toss a 3 1/4-ounce package of sliced pepperoni, chopped, and a 2 1/4-ounce can of sliced ripe olives, drained, with the pasta and other ingredients.
