fresh sliced mushrooms
green bell pepper, chopped
ranch-style salad dressing
grated Parmesan cheese
We made this recipe as a "last minute dinner" and it turned out better than I expected...my daughter, age 5, helped herself to THREE servings!! Next time, I plan to double the receipe so that there are leftovers because the first time we made it, there were none. I might try adding cooked, cubed chicken and since our family loves bell peppers, I might add a few more of those too! Overall, it was delicious and easy to make. The hardest part is chopping up the veggies. Thank you Becca for sharing this great, easy and fast supper idea!!
So quick and easy. Hot or cold, it's delicious both ways.
great easy recipie, good sidedish for just about any meal
I usually don't like pasta salad, but I love this one and so did my family. The only change I made was that I left out the carrots and mushrooms. DELISH!!
This was a great side-dish for a Baked Pesto Chicken recipe on this site. We used tri-colored rotini, and left out the bell pepper. I cooked the veggies and noodles in seperate pots, mainly because I was concerned the veggies wouldn't get done enough for our 3 year old. My husband made the comment that this was a way better side dish than "any of that boxed stuff". Next time I might add a little brown mustard to add a little extra zing.
This was surprisingly good - I'm not a huge ranch dressing fan, but I still loved it! I changed it a bit by adding assiago cheese instead of parmesean, added fresh ground pepper, some salt, and bottled, minced garlic. I also used tri-colored rotini - was fantastic! Would definitely recommend!
For how easy this recipe is and how unexpectantly good it is, this recipe should recieve much more attention! I made this for friends who were coming over for a BBQ & it was a hit. I did add some cooked cubed chicken (2 breasts). One can easily modify the veggies to suit their tastes.
This is pretty tasty when served right after making. I tried it the next day, cold, and it wasn't nearly as appetizing. It seemed to lose a lot of the flavor while sitting overnight. Thanks :)
