I've made this salad twice already since finding it a few weeks ago. I recommend adding slightly more pepper than is called for in the recipe, and definitely adding the pepperoni, but this is a great-tasting salad that's easy to make! We even liked it warm (un-chilled) when we were too hungry to wait!

I love pasta salads and all the ingriedients in this salad are things I like,but I did not like it at all. It seemed like there was too much cheese I would cube some mozzerella instead of the shredded. Also I thought there were too many eggs between the eggs and the cheese it was rather dry for my liking. I put in red bell pepper instead of green to brighten it up.

THIS PASTA WAS GREAT. I PUT IN SOME PEPPERONI AND CHICKEN. I DID NOT USE THE EGGS THO. I DO NOT LIKE THEM IN MY PASTA SALAD. PLUS I ADDED A LITTLE BIT OF BBQ SAUCE TO GIVE A LITTLE EXTRA SOMETHING. EVERYONE LOVED IT.

I didn't like the eggs in this, I think it makes it too mooshy. I did like the dressing on it however. You almost need to double the dressing and reserve half for later. The pasta does absorb quite a bit. Hubby loved it. Thanks for the recipe.

Just great as is.

When I made it I thought I might have ruined a whole bowl of good food because of the dressing, which smelled way too vinegar-y to me. But after chilling in the fridge a few hours that totally dissipated and the finished product was great.
