I used penne pasta. The recipe contains a bit too much oil. Next time I will use less olive oil in the salad dressing but add more pesto.

Very yummy pasta salad. I just put the dressing on to taste. Glad I tried this recipe. Usually I'm scared by any recipe with "surprise" in the name!

This was great! Very light and fresh pasta salad. I gave it four stars since I didn't follow the recipe exactly. At the last minute I realized I didn't have an Italian dressing packet so I upped the pesto and added juice from one lemon instead.

My husband loved this salad. As other reviewers suggested, I added the salad dressing to taste. I also added an extra can of artichokes. This is a great recipe for a summer potluck.

A good salad. Like others said, reduce the salad dressing as it really doesn't need a lot. I let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours to marinate.
