  • 2 oz gluten free, casein free pepperoni
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1/4+ cup gluten free Italian salad dressing

  1. Cook the pasta according to instructions. After draining the pasta, add to a bowl and place in the freezer. Stir a few times to get the pasta to cool down. Remove from freezer when the pasta is cold.

  2. Chop the pepperoni into strips and add to the cooled pasta.
  3. Cut the avocado flesh into cubes and add to the pasta.
  4. Add the Italian dressing and gently toss. Start with 1/4 cup and add more to your desired amount of salad dressing to pasta ratio. Season with salt and pepper. Keep chilled in the fridge until ready to serve.
