Cold pasta is just right for spring and summer. We’re not talking about a soggy, oil-drenched pile of noodles punctuated by cubes of bright yellow cheese and ham, either. Make it a real gourmet treat – with the best Italian Cheeses from Il Villagio, it’s easy to pull off!
The best pasta salads are a bit rich. Grated authentic Italian Cheese from Il Villagio is the secret ingredient for cool, delicious and satisfying pasta salads, what’s not to love? Smaller pasta noodles are best for serving cold. Go for pasta shapes that are usually stabbed rather than twisted, like cavatappi.
Parmigiano-Reggiano, Bacon and Spinach
