    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!  -  18 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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!!  -  29 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  21 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
