Tender pasta and bell peppers come together in this simple, but oh so flavor-filled Garlicky Pepper Pasta Salad.

We’ve been on a serious pasta salad kick this summer, and this salad is perfect as a light meal or side dish for your next potluck or barbecue.

Garlicky Pepper Pasta Salad

Inspired by some absolutely gorgeous bell peppers that our friends gave us, this salad came together in just a few minutes last weekend.

If you’re fortunate enough to have an abundance of multi-colored peppers at your fingertips, I recommend using as many colors as possible. However, it will be delicious with whatever peppers you have at hand.

Side note: If you do have a whole lot of peppers on hand, you’ll want to save these recipes for Italian Stuffed Bell Peppers, Slow-Cooker Bell Pepper Soup, Creamy Cajun Pasta, Chicken Fajitas, Pepper Eggs In A Hole, and Crispy Breakfast Hash.

I just can’t get enough of the great pasta salads this year. I think I’ve shared at least 5-6 new recipes with you this summer.

From Coleslaw Pasta Salad to Deviled Egg Pasta Salad, Tangy Italian Pasta Salad with Peppers, Olives, and Tomatoes to Jalapeno Tuna Pasta Salad, Mediterranean Pasta Salad to Poppyseed Pasta Salad with Chicken and Grapes – I really do love them all and each of these has been made more than once this year.

And one of them has been on repeat all year. I’m looking at you Jalapeno Tuna Pasta Salad with your cheesy bites and creamy dressing. My oldest son loves this one best and he’s been making it for our lunches at least every other week.

Bell Pepper Pasta Salad with a Tangy Garlic Dressing

We lucked into a big bag of garden bell peppers in red, orange, yellow, green, and even a brilliant purple. I combined that with a couple handfuls of grape tomatoes, some fresh parsley, and green onions.

My current favorite pasta dressing is a simple one with just olive oil, red wine vinegar, and plenty of garlic. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and you’re done.

With minimum fuss, your next meal is ready to eat and you can stash it in the fridge until everyone is hungry again. (In my house, that’s guaranteed to happen pretty much every hour or two.)
