Personally I felt this salad was too oily. I will make it again, but will cut the olive oil in half. I also won't drizzle the noodles with a little oil.

i made this as directed. It was a little bland for our tastes, so the second time I made this, I added some balsamic vinegar. I used about a third of a cup. I also added 1/2 teas of cayenne p...

Was delicious!! After reading some reviews, I did use less olive oil...

We loved it! Used basil olive oil and only in the mixture. More oil on the pasta would be too much.

Made this for a pot luck at work for labor day - family eat it right up. Had to make another batch for work. I used the high fiber shell pasta. Using what I have in the pantry.

This turned out great. The only thing I changed was to toss with olive oil and added a beef summer sausage.

Too bland, might try it again with a salad dressing.

Tastes great!
