My husband and I gave this recipe a strong 7, based on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the best). Next time we make it, we will use a little less olive oil and more black pepper. Other than that, it was very tasty. It will definitely become a recipe in the permanent family recipe book.
I was looking for a cold pasta salad dish, this was not it. This dish is much tastier warm. Also, the sausage was overpowering. If i make it again, i will use much less sausage or leave it out.
This recipe puts a different spin on pasta salad. I replace ingredients 3 thru 10 with about 5 ounces bottled pesto sauce and add a squirt of italian dressing for some zip. Shared the recipe with several friends and their families loved it too!
I loved this recipe! I am already planning on making it for an upcoming party. It was full of flavor and easy to make. I would recommend anyone to make this for parties, potlucks. It makes a lot and is such a great tasty dish you have to share.
I've learned to make my own pesto sauce and we I liked it. Didn't have the nuts or sausage or a lot of the ingredients, but we made a poor mans version and the pesto was right on. Thanks!
This is a winner at our house, especially in the summer months. I just buy premade pesto, and I do add some Italian salad dressing.
I made this for a group of people many of them are picky eaters and it went over very well. And I loved it. I used fresh cilantro instead of parsley and I skipped the mozzarella all together. I used a combination of black olives and kalamata olives which was a nice touch.
it was good, but it was wierd eating sausage with it...maybe kielbsa sausage would be better, also added a little italian dressing to the pasta dish
