The first time I made this I followed the instructions exactly. I really did not care for it. If you are serving this as a main dish, then maybe this could be 8 servings. If you are serving it as a side dish, it is more like 16 servings. Also, the ratio of pasta to other ingredients is off, in my opinion. The first time I ate this, the pasta was overwhelming. I could hardly taste any of the other ingredients, and I did not care for the Italian dressing. Maybe I needed to use better Italian dressing?? (I used Kraft's Italian dressing.) The second time I made this, I doubled the tomato and cucumber, added some kalmata olives, and used the Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing (approx 1 1/2 cups) from this site instead of bottled Italian dressing. I served this chilled as a side dish at a cook-out. I enjoyed it much more the second time with these adjustments. I would give this 5 stars with changes; however, rating the recipe as submitted, I can only give 3 stars.
