Sorry I've let you guys down on my weekly recipes, but this one is sure to please! Do you have any requests for types of recipes you'd like me to share??? Let me know!
This recipe comes from Southern Living (last summer, I think) and is perfect for a church potluck, lunch, or a light dinner. Plus, it's really pretty, layered in a glass dish (I use this lidded trifle dish--pictured below--from Southern Living at Home and I love it! ) Please note that 1)this recipe needs a minimum of 2 hours to chill and 2) the picture below does NOT feature the recipe I'm sharing, just my pretty dish that I like to use :)
Layered Antipasto Salad
3 cups uncooked penne pasta
2.5 cups broccoli florets
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
2 cups chopped tomato
1/2 pound deli roast beef slices, cut into strips
1/2 small red onion, sliced
1 cup Caesar dressing
6 provolone cheese slices, cut into strips
1. Cook pasta according to package directions, adding broccoli during the last 2 minutes of cooking time; drain. Rinse and cool. Toss with parsley.
2. Place half of pasta mixture in a 4-quart glass bowl; top with half each of tomatoes, beef, and onions. Repeat layers once. Pour dressing evenly over salad. Cover and chill at least 2 hours or overnight. Top with cheese before serving.
Hope you enjoy!
