  • 1 pound small shell pasta
  • 1/2 pound salami, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1 pound provolone cheese, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/2 pound mortadella, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/2 pound boiled ham, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 20 pitted jumbo black olives, sliced
  • 20 green Queen olives stuffed with pimientos, sliced
  • 1/2 cup minced yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • Put the water and 1 teaspoon of the salt in a large saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain. Rinse with cool water and drain again.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the pasta, salami, provolone, mortadella, ham, olives, onion, garlic, celery, parsley, and thyme.
