Ingredients

For the dressing

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or grated parmesan cheese
  • 10 cracks fresh black pepper

For the salad

  • 8 ounces ModernĀ® Table Rotini
  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon small dice, cooked crispy
  • 1 cup bite-sized cut broccoli
  • 1/2 red bell pepper small dice
  • 1/8 cup red onion small dice
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas

Instructions

For the dressing

  • In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients and whisk to combine, set aside.

For the salad

  • Cook the pasta per directions on the back of the box, do not overcook. Drain and rinse with cold water. Let drain as you assemble the rest of the salad, so a lot of the water drips off.
  • In the bowl with the dressing, add the cooked bacon, broccoli, bell pepper, onion, and frozen peas. Stir to combine with the dressing. Add in the pasta and fold in to combine. Cover with plastic and let chill for at least an hour in the fridge or until cold.
