Last week was very busy with school starting and we enjoyed this transition time with football and food this weekend. I love that it is still summer for a few more weeks and am ready for a cool down in the weather.

This Vegetable Spaghetti salad is perfect to make any time of year for dinner or lunch and is great for a barbecue or picnic too!

How Do You Make Spaghetti Salad?

It is easy! All you do is cut some fresh peppers, celery, and tomatoes, boil a pot of spaghetti and top with some Italian dressing and Parmesan cheese.

Cold Spaghetti Salad














Tips for this recipe:

  • It is a good idea to cut your spaghetti in half before you boil as it makes for easier eating.
  • You can change up the noodles and use linguini, bowtie or any other type of pasta, including whole wheat pasta.
  • I like to use half of two different color bell peppers for added flair. You can also use mini peppers for this recipe.



This salad makes a great chicken side dish or beef side dish.














If you are packing this salad to take to a potluck, I would suggest packing the cheese separate and add it just prior to serving.
