Young Adventures Pasta Salad

No one will eat macaroni salad in this home, but if I mention pasta salad their eyes light up and I hear yum.  I serve this as a main dish with fruit for dinner in the summer time.  You could serve it as a 
side dish of course, but it's summer make... things easy for yourself.

Pasta Salad

1/2 of a box of farfalle pasta, about 8 oz.
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 cup light vinegar (like white wine or rice wine)
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
Salt and Pepper
1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
4 oz. of feta either crumbled or cube it yourself 
1/2 cup Kalamata olives
1/4 pound of salami cut up in quarters or pepperoni
1 cup grape tomatoes

1.  Cook the pasta according to the package directions.
2.  While the pasta is cooking prepare the other ingredients.  In a large bowl combine mayo, vinegar, seasoning, salt, pepper,  Parmesan, and feta.
3.  When the pasta is finished cooking drain and rise under cold water until it is no longer hot.
4.  Add the cooked pasta to the bowl and stir with the dressing until it is combined.  Add the olives, salami, and tomatoes and stir until everything is incorporated.  Serve immediately.
