To make this dish I started by cooking some fusilli pasta.
Once the fusilli was cooked I drained it and ran it under cold water in the sink to cool it down.
I placed the cooked and cooled pasta into a large mixing bowl and added in some diced pepperoni, diced green peppers, real bacon bits and shredded mozzarella cheese.
I stirred until all the ingredients were mixed in.
Then I added some mayo, pizza sauce and seasonings.
I stirred well again until all of the pasta was well coated in the mayo and pizza sauce.
This pasta salad can be served immediately but I prefer to refrigerate it for a couple of hours first so that the pasta can really absorb all the flavours.
This Pizza Pasta Salad is the perfect side dish to serve at a potluck or BBQ.
