Pizza Pasta Salad Recipe

I made this one for a picnic lunch I sent with my older kiddos at school.  It’s great because there is no mayo, so it can sit in the cooler without a lot of worry.  I would suggest buying mini-pepperoni’s instead of cutting regular sized ones.  But, the regular size were the only ones available that day.  To make life easy, you can even cut a piece of string cheese into circles, instead of cubing mozzarella from a block.
