One of the reasons I think Hunt’s tomatoes are the best tomatoes around is that Hunt’s uses the flashsteam peeling method. No lye is used just water. Also Hunt’s tomatoes are taken from the field to the can within 10 hours. So they are packed fresh, & they are 100% natural with no preservatives. As a mom I really appreciate all of this. It’s really makes a difference in the taste & quality. So are you ready for the recipe? Let’s go! :)

Hunt's Petite Tomatoes #spon

For this recipe you’ll need:
2 cans Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes, drained & rinsed
1 can olives, sliced
1 package pepperonis, cut in fourths 
1 green dell pepper, chopped
Vinaigrette Balsamic salad dressing
1 box Garden Rotini pasta (16 oz.)
olive oil

pasta salad

First you will cook your pasta as directed on the box. I always add a little bit of olive oil to my water. This keeps the noodles from sticking together later on.

While the noodles are cooking prepare your olives, green peppers, pepperonis, etc.

After the noodles are done rinse them. Let cool. Stir in the Vinaigrette Balsamic salad dressing. I used a little over half of the bottle. You can use more or less depending on how much extra flavor you want to give your salad. Then stir in your other ingredients. Cover & refrigerate for a couple of hours. Then enjoy! :)
