A nice change for pasta salad. I had leftover mini penne pasta and it worked great in this recipe. I made up half the dressing amount and used an orange bell pepper, as that is what I had on hand. I decreased the sugar, just a tad, and the dressing was great. The dressing alone would be great on a tossed salad. Definitely a salad I would make again, as it is something different, and we like different. Served it with a bowl of spicy chili and we enjoyed the mixture of spice and sweet.
