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 pepper to the dressing. We like things hot as we are both a couple of chili heads.

I thought the premise was good but it needs more flavor. I added 3 cloves of finely minced garlic and 1/4 cup fresh oregano to the mixture. I also refrigerated the mixture overnight so the flavors could meld and added it to the elbows veggies and cheese. We enjoyed this for Sunday brunch. Thanks, Barilla

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