In the teacher's lounge a few month's ago, a parent brought in a pasta salad from a local catering place in observance of education week (how sweet-we LOVE food)and it had a "kick" to it. This is it! Just make it with tri-colored pasta add some cubes of cheese and that one had pepperoni. Let it set for a while to blend the flavor. Instant hit! And thanks to all out there who remember us teachers!

It was not at all interesting and quite boring. I thought the unusual spices, like the poppy seeds, would give it a good flavor, but it didn't. All I could really taste was the Italian dressing on top of pasta.

Great summer salad to use garden veggies. I used radiatore pasta in place of spaghetti noodles to *hold* the dressing and make it easier to pick up the pasta with a fork! Instead of bottled italian dressing I made the Italian Dressing recipe from this site and used it. Added a handful of cubed fresh mozzarella cheese. Used grape tomatoes in place of regular tomatoes. Next time I will add chopped pepperoni and broccoli and eliminate the poppy seeds.

My Gramma has made this for years with leftover spaghetti - for those people who aren't sure what kind of salad seasoning to use, Gramma has always used Salad Supreme and it turns out delicious! I can't wait to try this recipe. Sounds delicious!

Great based recipie! I doubled the parmesan cheese and cucumbers, added olives and bacon bits, and omitted the poppy seeds. I used fettucine since that what I had, and assume this will be great for any pasta shape. Excellent!

This is the best way to make pasta salad! The usual way seems so boring to my family now. It's such a verstile recipe and it's always a hit!

This Salad is a great summer pasta salad....I have made it several times and people just love it. I really did not add or take anything away the pasta salad was PERFECT the way it is. Easy and everyone will love it.

Very good pasta salad. Like many others, I used rotini noodles instead of spaghetti and added 1/2 yellow bell pepper (chopped) and chopped celery instead of cucumbers. With a little S&P and plenty of chilling time, this is a nice addition to your dinner table.
