  • 1 large green pepper, diced
  • 2 handfuls arugula/spinach salad mix
  • ⅓ cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 hot cherry pepper, seeded and finely chopped (optional)
  • ¾ cup salad dressing (we used home-made Italian)
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan or Pecorino cheese
  1. Prepare pasta according to instructions. Strain and let cool. Bring to room temperature.
