Pizza Salad

You'll have to excuse the ghetto picture of this salad. I made it for our Father's Day camping trip which explains the "fancy" bowl. I left out the mushrooms and didn't use all the pasta. How can you go wrong with pizza toppings on pasta?

1 (16 ounce) package small shell pasta
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
5 green onions, chopped
1 (4.5 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
2 1/2 ounces sliced pepperoni sausage
1 (2.25 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup Italian-style salad dressing
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook pasta until al dente, rinse under cold water and drain.
In a large bowl, combine the pasta, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, tomato, green onions, mushrooms, pepperoni, olives, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Toss together and refrigerate until chilled.
Before serving, add dressing and cheese; mix together well.
