I thought this was a very good simple pasta salad recipe. Just to spice it up a bit, I added chopped parsley and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Otherwise, you can pretty much add WHATEVER you want and it will still taste good!
This recipe sounded delicious, but I think the proportions might be off. I added more dijon mustard for more tanginess, but the end result was a lot blander than I expected. I think this recipe might need some fine tuning, but has some potential to be delicious. One thing I thought sounded good was to maybe add something sweet, like honey, to the dijon mustard.
Very tasty! I doubled the amount of dijon & pasta and used 3 large plum tomatoes. There might be something still missing from this recipe, but it won't stop me from making this again.
Really easy to make. Different from your usual pasta salads. I've made it several times now and it just gets better!
Made this last night and the hubby devoured it. I thought it could use a little more kick, so next time I may
up the dijon a little and maybe the
Chile pepper. But we will be making this again. Thanks for sharing!
LOVE THIS! Added chopped red bell pepper - it was a great addition to add some crispness. Used serrano peppers - a bit spicier than your average pepper. I also added a tbsp of sweet honey mustard because it looked good - and it was!!!! Doubled the recipe, and husband devoured in a day.
We really liked this recipe, for two reasons. First my Husband can make it and it is a fast recipe.
I changed the yogurt to no fat Lemon yogurt. 1 6oz. cotainer and 1/2 tea. more dijon. Yummy. We make 4 servings. I have what is left(if lucky) for lunch the next day.
This pasta salad is ok - it is missing something, but I have not figured out what. I like all the ingredients that are in it, but it needs something else. Hoping that once it sits overnight the flavors will meld a little better.
