I think what I love most about the pasta I use in this salad is it really soaks up the flavors quickly.  Most other pasta salads I have made with dressings need to sit overnight.  NOT the Casarecce Pasta!  I share more about that noodle below the video and images.  Check out this video and tell me what you think about this recipe.  Be sure to use the print option included below.

Cool Summer Casarecce Pasta Salad Recipe


  • 8 oz of cooked Casarecce Pasta
  • 1 cup of bite size pieces of mini cucumber
  • 1/3 cup of bite size pieces of Salami
  • 1/3 cup of chopped provolone cheese
  • 1/2 cup of Kalamata Olives
  • 1/4 cup of chopped green onions
  • 1/2 cup of Garlic Vinaigrette


  1. Prepare the pasta as directed on the package. Be careful to not over cook the pasta because it will be mushy. I use my Pressure Cooker to prepare noodles in the summer.
  2. While pasta is cooking chop up the ingredients
  3. Add the prepared cool pasta to your favorite mixing bowl
  4. Gently add salad dressing and toss gently
  5. On top of the pasta add the remaining ingredients
  6. If needed add a little more dressing so the salad is not dry
  7. Serve on a bed of Romaine lettuce or favorite greens to enjoy as a meal

This recipe was created by me using what I had on hand one summer afternoon.  I’ve been experimenting with this Casarecce Pasta I found at Aldi.  You will find more recipes as soon as I can get them posted so keep an eye on my Casarecce Pasta tags on this website.

The video in this share is very simple – just like the recipe.  I had fun making this quick video to show you how easy it is to make this recipe.  You can make it a meal by serving it on your favorite greens or lettuce.  I used romaine in mine today because it is what I had on hand.  I hope you check out the video below and tell me what you think.

Make Them Bite-Size Pieces

A few highlights from this post is the yummy ingredients.  I love creating new recipes using what we have on hand.  It seems these days I have been keeping Salami, provolone cheese and these yummy vegetables in my refrigerator.

I found mine at Aldi in the speciality food isle.  I wish I would have stocked up on these because I am having so much fun making new recipes with this fun little noodle.  I’ve got more recipes using this pasta on my website at Casarecce-pasta-recipes.
