Other than a great game, what is the best thing on gameday? The food! Now you can support your favorite college sports team with what you eat. Pasta Shoppe offers 60+ collegiate teams to choose from. These pasta salads are fun and they taste great too. A vinaigrette seasoning packet is included with the fun shaped noodles.
I made the Ultimate Roll Tide Pasta Salad for the Alabama vs. Texas A&M game. I was running late so I didn’t arrive in time for kickoff. By the time I arrived, the score was 14-0 in favor of Texas A&M. Then I broke out the pasta salad and the rest is history. Did this pasta salad help Alabama win? We may never know! The following is the recipe that I used to make this:
The Ultimate Roll Tide Pasta Salad
1 package Ultimate Roll Tide Pasta Salad
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 olive oil
- Vinaigrette: Combine seasoning packet, ½ cup red wine vinegar, and ¼ cup olive or vegetable oil in glass bowl. Heat in microwave, stirring occasionally, until packet is dissolved, about 1 ½ minutes. Set aside to cool.
- Pasta: Cook pasta 6-8 minutes in GENTLY boiling water. Drain pasta in colander, rinse with cold water.
- Add the cucumber, pepper, and onion to pasta.
- Gently toss the pasta, vinaigrette, and vegetables. Add salt and pepper to you own taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Easy to make a day ahead, just toss again before serving.
In addition to all these collegiate teams, Pasta Shoppe offers a wide selection of other pastas, ranging from seasoned pasta nests to seasonal fun shaped pasta. Check out their website to see what they offer.
