This is one of those recipes which allow for as much or as little liberties as you like! I personally love to jazz this Italian pasta salad up with half moon slices of pepperoni, cubed mozzarella and smoked cheddar cheeses, black olives, small pepperoncini peppers, and little grape tomatoes! It could be a meal in itself!
It was OK. Nothing special and I probably wouldn't make it again.
I really liked this and so did our company. The second time I made it, however, I added a 1/2 cup of Cilantro and some cubed mozzerlla cheese. WOW!!
Excellent pasta salad. Has the perfect amount of zing. I have tried 2 other pasta salad recipes from this site that took alot more prep work & were nowhere near as tasty as this quick & easy recipe. I omitted the green bell pepper because I thought the red one was sufficient. Otherwise I followed recipe to a tee. Thanks for sharing Jeanette.
This pasta salad is great. Everyone I've made it for has loved it. Use the amount of dressing called for.
The caesaritalian dressing mix is what MAKES this salad! I add orange and yellow bell peppers(along with the red and green), and sliced black olives for some real color. Salami chunks are also a tasty addition! Everyone always likes it! Thanks!!!
Tried this for a potluck at work, co-workers loved it and got lots of requests for the recipe. It's so easy to do, I've made this several times and I've added black olives and changed up the pasta, comes out great every time!
This is just the pasta salad I was looking for! I left out the peppers simply because I don't care for them and it was still wonderful! Try adding some shredded parmesan in addition to the grated cheese. Yum! Thanks for this simple and great tasting recipe!
