A Cool Chow Chow and Spaghetti Salad

This is what Teddy does all day to stay cool.  I actually found her leaning on the fan yesterday.  This weather is horrible and she is one smart puppy! Cool stone, A/C and a fan blowing is Chow Chow heaven during hot weather. If I could just get her to go in the pool!
 With temps right around 100 degrees, I wanted to feed the kids something cool for their Wednesday lunch so I made them good old-fashioned spaghetti salad. I quadrupled the recipe to feed 30 kids so I will give you the instructions for 1 recipe.  Dice 1 onion, 1 zucchini, 1 cucumber, 3 stalks of celery, 1 green pepper, 1 can of black olives and 1 container of cherry tomatoes.

 Add 1/2 lb. of diced pepperoni and an 8 oz. block of cubed cheddar cheese.

 Boil 1 lb. of spaghetti until al dente and rinse with cold water.

 Toss it all around.

 Add 1-1/2 cups of Italian dressing.

 I made my own but most recipes call for a bottle of zesty Italian from the grocery store.

 Add 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese and toss to coat all the spaghetti.

The Blog Tech said the kids devoured it.
