Julie's Italian Macaroni Salad

I understand that summer is gone for most of us...BUT you have all those wonderful holiday parties coming up and who doesn't like a GREAT pasta salad for a large pot luck dish?!! I LOVE pot luck ANYTHING...but if I'm bringing something, I like for it to be easy, BUT TASTY. This Italian Macaroni Salad fits both the "easy" and "tasty" categories! Its very versatile and can be served with both burgers or turkey (at least at my house). It pleases both the old and the young alike....everyone loves this Italian Macaroni Salad!

Julie's Italian Macaroni Salad

2 lbs (each box is a pound) salad noodles, cooked according to package directions

1 7oz package pepperoni, each piece cut into fourths
3 large tomatoes, diced
1-2 cucumbers, diced
1 1/2 bottles (16 oz each) Italian vinaigrette dressing (can use fat-free)
2-3 c. grated cheese

Combine COOKED salad noodles, pepperoni, tomatoes, cucumbers and 1 bottle of dressing. Stir until completely mixed. Add cheese and another 1/2 bottle of dressing. Stir and mix completely. Serve immediately. Refrigerate any leftovers. 

*The noodles will absorb the dressing, so when serving leftovers, add more dressing. Leftovers taste great!!
