"Cold penne pasta tossed with three colors of raw bell peppers, gorgonzola, walnuts, and wilted spinach in champagne-honey-walnut vinaigrette. A delicious dinner entree." — POPINKI

1 (16 ounce) package

red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
yellow bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
This was wonderful for guests. It seemed like a little too much pasta for the amount of veggies, so I might cut that back a bit next time. Lacking champagne vinegar I used balsamic, which was tasty too. It was great the next day for leftovers.
This was pretty bland. Lacking something. There was too much pasta for the amount of veggies, and I doubled the amount of peppers. And it was a boring dish. But if you put some blue cheese dressing in it, it gives it that extra something and it tastes so much better. With the blue cheese dressing I would change my vote from a two to a four.
I was asked to make this recipe for a party by the hostess. I was a little leary, but one taste and it is now a favorite of all of ours. The dressing ingredients are great.
Delicious! Added two thinly sliced shallots, used ex.vir.olive oil instead of canola, and goat cheese rather than gorgonzola, as was on hand, a dash of white wine, and topped w/fresh cracked black pepper..YUM!
This recipe is excellent as is, but I added sliced ripe olives. Serves a lot of people. I served to 300 guests last night & had rave reviews!!
Great pasta salad. I love the dressing and I use it on spinach salad often!
This was a solid pasta salad! Both the hubs and I liked it a lot. I made a few tiny modifications - added minced garlic and sweet onion, salt and pepper. Also cut way down on ratio of pasta to veggies based on other reviewers comments. My noodles were a tiny bit warm when I mixed them with the veggies, dressing, and cheese, and I liked that this helped the gorgonzola crumbles melt a bit and cover the pasta. I think adding crumbled bacon would take this salad to the next level as a main dish. Yum!
