low-fat vinaigrette dressing or Italian dressing
crumbled blue cheese or gorgonzola cheese
cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered, according to size
chopped fresh basil
I used a homemade lowfat creamy italian dressing in this dish and cubed provolone, only because I didn't have the other cheezes on hand. To fill it out just a little, I threw in one peeled and cubed cucumber. My husband and kids really liked this pasta salad--the leftovers that were in the fridge after dinner were eaten late last night by my husband.
Loved this recipe! I made a few changes, I omitted the cheese because I personally am not a fan of blue cheeses. I used a Fat Free Ceasar Italian dressing that is great. This salad is amazing, definitely a go to lunch meal, it was easy to make and very quick. I am excited to eat the left overs for lunch tomorrow!
I love this recipe! So easy and delicious!! Great for the summer time with fresh basil and tomatoes from the garden. I used wishbone Italian dressing. Love!!!
I made this for a wake reception and everyone loved it.
very easy and yummy! I added some sliced olives and made my own Italian dressing with 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 1 tsp Italian seasoning.
I was looking for a cold pasta salad recipe and was lucky enough to stumble upon this one. I used 2 small diced roma tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes because that's what I had, but other than that, made per the directions. The only thing I would do different next time is double the recipe because it is that good!
