Patriotic Pasta

"A popular side dish for our Independence Day menu, this hearty pasta salad is practically a meal in itself. It fit into our theme with the bright red cherry tomatoes, white noodles and cauliflower plus blue cheese. The creamy dressing is pleasantly zesty. -Laurie Neverman, Green Bay, Wisconsin"

I made this salad by the recipe and found it to be a little to tart. Think I will leave out the sweet peppers and the blue cheese next time to see if it agrees with my taste better
