    Used different ingredients. The name says it all — easy! However, it is a little bland. I have added little more parmesan cheese, artichokes and marinade. I have also added black olives and sun-dried tomatoes in oil. The oil which soaks up the flavour of the sun-dried tomatoes really adds flavour to the salad. Couple tablespoons will do the trick.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This is excellent! I've been in search of a good tasting, easy, pasta salad and this is it. I especially loved the artichoke hearts, so I doubled the required recipe. Thanks for sharing!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Easy and delicious recipe (my husband loved it!) It's easy to adjust to your liking - I added a lot more artichokes and a bit more parmesan cheese. Very nice.  -  29 Sep 2008
