The recipe says to serve this wonderful concoction on English muffins, which, according to my scribble in the cookbook, is “great.” I experimented this time with serving the cheese-glazed vegetables on better-for-you whole grains.
This is one of my go-to pasta salads, and I most recently made it for a Memorial Day cookout with my family. I usually buy a red pepper-parmesan vinaigrette for the dressing, but I couldn’t find it this time and was forced to make up my own. I ended up with a better pasta salad, so it was worth that little bit of extra work.
I first tried making this traditional Italian bread salad a few years ago just because I was intrigued by what I’d read about it. The dressing is tossed with the bread cubes and soaks in, so you’ll want to get a bit of one in every bite.
