    I have been making this salad for years. First found it on the back of Golden Grain macaroni package. My family loved it. It has been a hit at potlucks and barbeques over the years. My son's most requested dish. As I reviewed the recipe I found a couple of discrepancies. First the macaroni was a 16 oz.package. Second it called for 1 cup of marinara sauce. At the time the recipe appeared on the package Golden Grain had an 8 oz. Can of marinara sauce on the market.  -  12 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Terrible, the more we ate the more we didn't like it!  -  31 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    It was delicious. Everyone at work loved it and several asked for the recipe. I think it tastes better the longer it is refrigerated! Yummy!  -  03 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
